4742 Kittens fishing while policeman watches

I simply don’t know enough about European culture to interpret this vintage card. On the far left one of the kittens is quickly leaving the scene. Is that because fishing there is illegal, because he doesn’t have a license or for some other …

What a place to live! A covered deck on which to home school the children with a view across the lake to the white capped mountains in the distance. You can almost smell the pine scent in the air.

4745 Excursion boat on lake Constance?

The lake Constance is a guess, but how many Swiss lakes are there large enough to have such a large excursion boat? It’s probably the same lake shown in the chalet picture on card 4744.

4750 Bicycle racers roll through town

The bicycle racers ride though town while kittens and adults cheer and photographers take pictures. The three birds down in front better get out of the way.

4752 Psychedelic car filled with hippies

4754 Scout troupe with drums marches down the road

Notice the red flag at the front of the procession. I think it says “Miau” where USA speakers would say “Meow”. There is obviously lots of glamor attached, since the local boys are falling over themselves to run alongside. The …
