Edward VII in Paris 1903 . . .


S.M. EDOUARD VII A PARIS - 1903
1er Mai - Avenue du Bois de Boulogne
Passage de Sa Majesté et du Prèsident Loubet

This postcard was sent from somewhere in England (possibly Winchester) to the Isle of Wight on December 10 1909. Arthur (the sender) was obviously keen to get as many words as possible in the message as he writes both vertically and horizontally in the same space. I've seen other cards written like this, obviously deciphering them was an art. The image on the card is likewise busy and it takes a strong magnifying glass and a sharp eye to find the King.
