taken from Wiki: "The Hughes H-4 Hercules (also known as the Spruce Goose; registration NX37602) is a prototype strategic airlift flying boat designed and built by the Hughes Aircraft Company. Intended as a transatlantic flight transport for use during World War II, it was not completed in time to be used in the war. The aircraft made only one brief flight on November 2, 1947, and the project never advanced beyond the single example produced. Built from wood because of wartime restrictions on the use of aluminum and concerns about weight, it was nicknamed by critics the Spruce Goose, although it was made almost entirely of birch. The Hercules is the largest flying boat ever built, and it has the largest wingspan of any aircraft that has ever flown. It remains in good condition and is on display at the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum in McMinnville, Oregon, United States" ~ postcard, circa 1960's
Promenade dominicale à Guebwiller, ce qui me permet de retrouver l'endroit exact de la prise de vue de cette superbe carte postale photographique ! Envoyé le 12.02.1913 sur le pont de la Lauch à côté de l'ancienne gare.
Sunday walk in Guebwiller. I was able to find exactly where the picture was taken in february 1913. Right next to the former train station.

Don’t know much about this one, got it off eBay for $15 a few months ago.
He has a buffalo bill Chest piece though (who died in 1917) so I’m guessing it’s from sometime after then. #rppc

The message reads: "Dear H., I thought of having a week in Switzerland this January, but cannot make up my mind which place to go, Engleberg or Grindlewald, do you know either of them, if so which can you recommend? I suppose you cannot come with me? Switzerland to be fully appreciated should be seen in Winter to my mind. Shall go Polytechnic 7½ guineas. I trust you are all well. Regards, Vincent."
