[Postcard of Fire Fighters with Carriages, Paris, France]

Description: Postcard of fire fighters in horse-drawn fire engines, lined up in a city street. A man in an officer's uniform is standing by the front vehicle. The back of the postcard has a handwritten message from the recipient that says, "Many thanks for your very interesting card, and to have written to the secretary. I beg your pardon to be so late to answer you, but I had too much to do. I did not know that I was so much under the number of cards that I had to send you another one. Today I send you only one card, because I have no more here of that kind, but tomorrow I shall buy more fire cards and send them to you."
