Help with reading some writing
(1/2) > >>
Can anyone help us by deciphering the text at the top on this postcard for us. It came to the library as a donation and has a photo of Hunt Pot on the other side. Mary Boyd Dawkins' signature is there among others. We suspect the text could be in German?
Thanks for you help in advance
I think I can pick out “is narrow” and “to information”
And perhaps starts madam, or “mm”
Can't help with the top part as the writing is so poor, but I believe you are correct about it being in German as the writer signs off with "Herzl. grusse" meaning "Heartfelt greetings". The symbol that looks like a "p" is a German letter commonly represented in English translations as "ss".
I'll help you.
Yes, it's german. Written in Sütterlin (old type of handwriting).
I'll have a look after work.
