Ca. 1910: Attractive, scarce, unusual Carnival Postcard. Most decorative lithographed postcard with a strange content: A Harlequin with sabre dominates the left side of the postcard. The right upper part shows a crowd in the street watching a burning house.

The inscription reads: “ 10,000 Gun Licenses. Prince Carnival is a humdinger this year „.
