Have you been to Singapore? Or have gone shopping or strolling in the Orchard Road? Well The V has bought a postcard for a dear singaporean friend of ours that he stumbled upon while shopping in Ebay. This card was written and sent to a Fraulein (Miss) in 1906 to Potsdam, Germany. The guy who sold the postcard said that this was Orchard Road that time. If you have been to Orchard Road, then you will see how it drastically changed throughout the hundred year. Then again, it is with almost every part of this world. It's just nice to have such proofs how it existed before.
It's weird that the card got to Potsdam because Germany wasn't written just the city. The postal system must have been more reliable that time than it is now :) The V. thought it must been sent through a ship bound to Germany. I wonder what is the story behind the Fraulein and the man who sent the card. We barely can't understand the handwriting except for a few words. Anyway, I think it is very romantic.
