My entry for Postcard Friday is a postcard ("briefkaart" in Dutch) of 80 years back (1933).
At the time, there was, like today, an economical crisis in Europe. At the lefthand bottom line you can read "Met een toeslag van 3 ct voor het Nat Crisis Com" (With an addition of 3 ct for the National Crisis Committee).
This card was sent by my grandparents to my parents in Batavia, Dutch Indies (Djakarta, Indonesia). We found it when we cleared away the house of my mother after her death.
