Title

Souvenir d'Amiens

Description

Message on card reads "France 24/6/17. Dear Winnie, Here is a view of Amiens which I have visited. Note the cathedral in the distance it stands out on its own and I can assure you there are many fine buildings there. Business seems to be carried on differently to our Australia, telegraph wires are run along tops of buildings. And believe me some of the mademoiselles know how to dress. Your old "cobber" Stan."
