Electric trams had been around for about five years when Dr. Bine sent this card to his sister Marie. Decades later, I would board a streetcar here every day on my way home from school. There are still streetcars in Heidelberg, along with an S-Bahn and a funicular that goes up to the castle.
_____ from his mother just now. She was writing from the Adler Sanitarium where Schmoll (?) placed her for 2 weeks - he treating her with Moffitt consulting. It is thus much more satisfactory to know her there as we start out on the trip to-morrow Saturday and a weight off our minds as her Los Angeles doctors were by no means as reassuring. She says Moffitt is to write to us as soon as he gets time + Schmoll is to write to Liss about her in a day or so. Heard from Sadie yesterday. She says Marcelle got Jeanne ___, a David Salomom- are desirous of knowing whether fish for an Isaac henry ___ Sadie says I'll take her present home later. Also says her dad sent us money. How much?
I can't make out the last few lines at all.
Here's another card Dr. Bine sent from Heidelberg.
The message reads:
Many a time I ____ I turn up the Bunsenstr. which leads up the RohrbachStr. to the GaisburgStr. Where you see the word "Hotel" stands the Hotel pension "Alt Heidelberg", a more or less modern Pension. That is the Rohrbacj Str. + up that last block to the end + then a block to the right + we are home. You can thus begin to get an idea of where we have been living.
Here are the backs of the cards in the same order.
