Here is a line art postcard from the German occupation of Lithuania (Russia) during World War I.It was printed and published by the newspaper of the (German) 10th army. The artwork was by W. Guethlen. It was written on May 16, 1918, mailed to a recipient in Cuxhaven, and postmarked on May 18 from Kowno (Kaunas). The old German Suetterlin script makes the message indecipherable to me.

The card is titled "Wilna Millionarskirche", or Millionaire's Church in Vilnius. I can't find a match for this church on the web. It may be the Church of St. Peter and St. Paul in a restored, or slightly different appearance today.

IkeyPikey, I just now spotted your card of the 'Boer'nkinkel' at Hoenderloo and it brought back memories as I ate there many a time! The Heineken sign is not really a sign, but a bicycle stand. One can park ten to twelve bikes in that stand, and almost everywhere one goes in the Netherlands one will find these stands!

Ikey, I'm just getting around to asking about the windmill card that you posted some time back. Can you tell me if that is engraved? You should be able to feel the raised ink, if it is. I'm assuming it's Dutch?

Petert4522: Yes, of course, it is a bike rack, and not a sign. Duh.

GregAlex: I will check the very next time I see it. Breathe out.

Thanks Florian! I could never have worked through that script. And, thanks for the Mission Church link.

GregAlex, the card you are referring to is a reproduction of a Rembrandt etching. I do not know if the card itself is an etching.

Here is a stylish drawing captioned "The Amen Corner" of the Fifth Avenue Hotel.



I googled "Fifth Avenue Hotel", and quickly found:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fifth_Avenue_Hotel

But that one was open from 1859-1908 on 5th Avenue at 23-24th Street, while 'mine' was on 5th Avenue at 9th Street ... never mind that 'my' postcard was postmarked in 1941!

Reading further about the 1859-1908 Fifth Avenue Hotel, we find:

Quote:
"... From a corner nook in one of the public rooms, which he dubbed his "Amen Corner", Republican political boss Thomas Collier Platt controlled patronage in New York City and State for a few years in the 1890s; here he held his "Sunday School", where projects did not go forward until they had his "amen" ...

"... The old hotel's name was taken up by a Fifth Avenue Hotel at 24 Fifth Avenue ... later converted to apartments ..."

Apparently, the 'new' Fifth Avenue Hotel decided to take on the history, and not just the name ... hence the artwork on the postcard.

I have a PDF of a New York Times article, Fifth Avenue Hotel Closes at Midnight, dated 04/April/1908, which is a treat to read.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_...in_Manhattan ... List of former hotels in Manhattan

That's not much of a list but, then, as I have not contributed any names, perhaps I should not contribute my criticisms, either.

Cheers,

/s/ ikeyPikey



I cannot make out the last name of the artist (Casner?), and got nowhere googling that, to boot.

Well done, Florian!

I could not find a WikiPage (how often does that happen?) but:

I really like this set of Esperanto postal cards from Danzig. Unfortunately, they tend to be a bit too rich for my blood, so this is the only one I've bought so far.

A line art drawing of the Mission San Juan Bautista in California.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Missi...uan_Bautista

The card is postmarked 19461028 in San Juan Bautista in California.

If the stamp matches, I've got a MaxiCard!



Cheers,

/s/ ikeyPikey
