But of course, I will stick to my topic: Esperanto.
The cards I'm posting now are not just cards with 'Esperanto' on it, or a green star (verda stelo) somewhere in the corner. No it's a set of postcards issued for a special occasion.
In 1911 the seventh international Esperanto congress was held in Antwerp (Belgium).
The cards show scenes of the events in and around the congress area, where at the time, a lot of events took place in the city of Antwerp.
For example, the international Red Cross was present and showed the people their skills.
It's a bit funny to see them dressed in the old days' costumes, as they don't accelerate the speed of intervention.
I don't have the complete set, and I presume there are 20 different cards, so if anyone can help me finding the missing ones.... please let me know
|Card 1 - Nurses of the Red Cross, in uniform|
|Cards 2 and 3 - role play, red cross in action|
|Card 16 - after the intervention of the Red Cross|
|Card 16 detail : "you certainly will get better, friend"|
