Divided Back, Used postcard. Postmarked November 11, 1913, Port Said, Egypt. Publisher: The Cairo Postcard Trust. Series 306. Postally used stamp: Postes Egyptiennes, Deux Milliemes, Green.
Colored scene of Port Said, Egypt, entrance to the Suez Canal. Publisher or printer would have added the colors to this card which would have based upon a black and white photo.
Addressed to: “Monsieur Foray, rue Pierre-Gay, Décines-Charpieu, Isère, France”. The front is signed and dated by the sender. The signature (Springer?) is open to interpretation.
This card would be of interest to the Foray family. One possibility is Bernard Foray, who was married December 4, 1886 to Annette Vittoz in Décines-Charpieu.
Décines-Charpieu is located in Lyon, in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region of France. “Isère” in the address, was a little difficult to decipher, and then we wondered why it was included, but the question got sorted out by Wikipedia (in the History section):
“Décines left the department of Isère to join the department of Rhône in 1968, and became a member of the Communauté urbaine de Lyon in 1969. On 1 January 2015 Décines left the department of Rhône to join the Metropolis of Lyon.”
