"4K2PGO" colorful Heyss Island (Остров Хейса, in Franz Joseph Land) QSL card from the USSR Geophysical Observatory there, used July 1991, excellent condition.

"99 - VIERVILLE-sur-MER (Calvados) / Lorsque le vent favorise les fortes marées, les vagues envahissent le Boulevard et laissent en piteux état / les Clôtures des Propriétés riveraines // Le Gallois, Agence de Location, Vierville" meaning 'when the wind favors strong tides, waves invade the Boulevard and leave it in a pitiful state'.

No. 14), minor corner wear. The observatory shown later fell. $6.00 tmm
"Ben Nevis / ..." H. B. Wimbush art in vertical format, unused Tuck Oilette Postcard 7680, back lightly toned, tiny corner crease. Second line of caption is handwritten & hard to read.

ORVAL DAVIS / AGENT / WILDORADO, TEXAS" with a 2-stanza poem touting the crop insurance of Cravens, Dargan & Company, soliciting the business of W. N.

"le Panorama de Menton / Suis arrivé, ____ 190__ / Distractions: variées / ... " fancy carte postale with an embossed thermometer, barometer & wallet beneath the color view, various blanks for the purchaser to fill in. Removed very carefully from a booklet, unused, whitish scraped area mars the scene. Judging by the even browning of the paper & the division of the back, it is from the time just after the undivided back era. The most elaborate such postcard we have ever seen. $6.00 fm*
"LUDWIGSHAUS IM RAUHREIF" showing the Karl Ludwig mountaineering house in hoarfrost (needle-like crystalline ice on ground formed by direct condensation), with its light green cachet on back; Postkarte mailed 1909. Still doing business, this accommodation is the highest of those in the Rax Austrian mountain range. $7.00 amm
""Main Street, Nurenburg(sic), Pa." including a sign for Golden Ice Cream, post card mailed there (Nuremberg spelling correct in cancel, of course) SEP 4 1958, handwritten note from their postmistress Timoria Warnick -- "Many of those beautiful trees were destroyed by hurricane Hazel ...". The tropical storm Hazel (to the residents it was a hurricane & it long remained so in their memories) hit the town in the fall of 1953, so the view is necessarily 1953 or earlier. A rare postcard as you might guess from the caption error, or possibly from the timing of bad weather after it was printed, or both! No other offers, recorded sales, or exhibits when we searched the Internet. Sold but front side still available for scholarly study & research as an enlarged 300-dpi scan (publication quality) in .jpg format for $3.75. p(n)mmp
"Rain effect, Aden 20.3.22" showing surface flooding near the Grand Hotel Royal; sepia-tone postcard from J. M. Coutinho, unused, rough edges as issued, very unusual subject matter.
