This is a typical Moroccan water carrier?

One can only hope so!

All three cards bear the legend "PHOTOGRAPH APPROVED BY THEATRE CENSOR ADC".

gTranslate tells me that Schwarzwalder Uhrmacher => Black Forest Clockmaker.

I cropped the image so that there would be more Uhrmacher and less Schwarzwalder.

Cheers,

For "Na trgu", gTranslate offers "on the market".

Ikey, "na trgu" literally means on the square.
Market szene on the card is in german and means scene from the market place.
Back than and through current times, Market was the name for both green market and and any other goods to be sold during AM hours in urban places here in Balkans.

Didn't know ploygamy was a thing in Haiti, but it googled-up easily enough.

One of the post cards I picked in Forte's clearance was a RPO with a native Californian on the back.

Some fine Japanese ladies circa 1965. Photos don't do the Geisha justice {especially ones the image optimizer gagged on}. I was walking through a local casinos' restaurant row one day when I nearly stumbled into two Geishas outside a Japanese steakhouse. Seeing them in person is so stunning you want to touch them to see if they're real {I didn't}.

Japanese women in kimono, not necessarily geisha or maiko (apprentice geisha), are a postcard topic that I find hard to resist. Here are a couple of favorites from my collection, which I've previously posted elsewhere on the forum.
