    "Bildpostkarten" are postcards with a picture on
    the left of front-side.Many,many exist of the
    "german era".Here two from Czeschoslovakia,part
    of Austria till 1918.

    In commemoration of the 500th birthday anniversary of Albrecht
    Dürer,the german post office issued a set of five postcards.
    On the back they show five different works of Dürer.
    The address-sides are identical,except from the description of
    the paintings.
    Dürer1.jpg
    This was the only picture-postcard issue of West-Germany ever.
    300,000 were printed of each card.
    Within a very short time they were sold out.But the expectation
    of a rapid increase in value did not materialize.So many cards
    were used later for mailing purposes.Most used cards have
    additional postage stamp(s),as the postal tariffs had become
    more expensive in the meanwhile.

    Werner:

    Can you translate the inscription at the top of the frame below the angels?

    Thanks.

    Don,
    I´m sorry,I can´t decipher the words.So I don´t know whether
    it is German or Latin.Trying the net did have no positive results.
    Here card III:
    Dürer4.jpg
    Here you can see the title right near the top: "welsch pirg".
    Again I cannot read it,but it says so on the other side of the
    card.In modern German this is: "Welsches Gebirge".
    This is not so easy to translate."Gebirge" is mountain range.
    However "Welsch(es)" is more difficult.It means people or
    land of the Romans (other than the German tribes).Today the
    word is used only in German-speaking parts of Switzerland.
    The non-German parts,French-,Italian- and Räto-Roman-speaking parts are called Welsch-Schweiz.

    From the Netherlands:
    A1.jpg Nice cancel and a remarkable address: just the name of the
    company and the city Cologne.No street,no country.Postal
    workers were more clever in those days.
