Postcards from France and Belgium
A postcard from Antwerp, Belgium, depicting La Place de St. Nicolas. At the very center of the postcard there is a water pump featuring a statue of St. Nicholas at the top. This courtyard still exists today behind a church dedicated to this same patron saint. The sender made sure to assert the beauty of the city, despite the "poor picture".
The second postcard shows L'Hotel de Ville (city hall) and police station of Mazingarbe, France. This town is in the Pas-de-Calais region, Although it was a small village, its people "sure were friendly" according to the sender.
Unknown. Postcard of La Place St. Nicolas (Antwerp, Belgium: N.D), and Postcard of Mazingarbe (Mazingarbe, France: N.D).
