The Lovely Josephine

This card was sent to Josephine from Czechoslovakia. Josephine looked very much like the child on the right when she was young, but I don't suppose this is actually a picture of her. My Slovak language skills are sadly lacking, but should a Slovak wander by, a translation would be greatly appreciated.

I know that the card was received, but I don't know if it was actually mailed like this or not. The stamp has been removed and there is no visible cancellation. It may have been included in a package instead. I'm curious, because I notice that the state is missing from the address. Maybe it didn't matter.


  1. This is such a lovely photo card. I hope someone translates it!

  2. I tried to decipher the postcard. I know Czech not Slovak. Also the writing is faded and I had to try to read it sideways. So forgive the spotty job.

    Dear Jarinka Sister,
