chortkov_05.jpg (61122 bytes)This postcard was submitted by Susana Leistner Bloch who writes as follows. "This is the back of the postcard shown previously. The image is of a crown and the words going around it are 'Kaiserliche - Königliche - Österreichische - Post' and the stamp value is 10 heller. There is a rubber stamp that says: 'Zensurstelle Stanislau' So I assume that mail was censored in those days as the words mean : Sensor Station Stanislau. The postcard has the words: Ulica Mickiewiicza. Ulica means street."
