Archivist's Comment

NH- 02.10.16

New description added, back of card photo flapped for correct orientation, publisher and relation deleted, classification changed to personal, map location added, and printed text (back) added. Some of this cards printed text is in German and I think that it would be very helpful to have someone fluent in the language look at this card. JSH 3/27/16.
