A postcard from Egypt dated 1921. The printed text on the back is:

                        CARTE POSTALE

  EGYPTE - Les Pyramides
           et le Sphinx - LL -

I found the card on a street market here in Fredrikstad, Norway. The
handwritten text on the back indicates that it was sent by a sailor in
traffic in the Mediterranean (Marseilles, Port Said, Jaffa and Cyprus
are mentioned). It was posted in Alexandia, dated Jan. 18, 19921, for
Molde, Norway.

This is the original scan which is 150 dpi and 200 colors. The card is
72 x 151 mm.
