Description
"Houtdraagster. Porteuse de bois." An elderly woman carries a load of wood on her back. It is quite a large pile of fairly large sticks and causes her to bend over. Additional text on the back asks for monetary donations for the missions and indicates that the postcard was printed in Antwerp, Belgium.
