HOLD TO LIGHT POSTCARD by WH - Berlin, Card No. 3215. "From the day to the night - how sudden and strange.
Hold up to the light what an exquisite change."
"On the Aray at Miller's Linn - Inveraray"
The supreme achievement of the postcard industry was probably the publication of hold-to-light and transparency cards.
Most were made in Germany between 1900 and 1910, with some made in the United States, France, the Netherlands, and Hungary [source: www.classicards.com/htl.htm].
This card has a divided back for address and correspondence and is more than likely ca. 1907-1910.
