The card is not addressed and it had not been mailed. It is in very good condition with rounded corners. The card was printed in Germany and there is a poem that reads as follows:
We went down on the boat,
And while it was jay to float,
We both were happy when we got on dry land:
And now we’ll never part
For I won her little heart
That Sunday afternoon at Coney Island.
To judge the sizes the largest postcard measures about 5-1/2'' x 3-1/2''.
