Besançon 1899

This card was posted in August 1899, it’s not often we come across postcards before 1900 so I thought I’d share it with you. It’s not in the best of condition but is interesting because of its age

The statue is of Cardinal Granvelle (1517-1586) who was an influential French statesman and a famous collector of art.

Wow, that in and of itself is awesome. I don't think it looks bad at all. What a treasure to be found. :o)

Peter: Thankyou, I hope you had a safe journey back. Dom tells me she'd like to work for the Red Cross in Africa in the future. I wonder if you will meet up.

Breezy: Thank you for your visit. Happy new Year to you - I hope to visit you more regularly this year!
