Set: Nothomb

The thirteen postcards shown chronologically on this page were sent to attorney Albert Nothomb in Liège Belgium, between 11/29/1904 and 4/15/1909. Five were sent by J.A. Leuenberger, two by M. Bliss (see Set: Bliss), the other six by six other senders. Nothomb was a postcard collector; Weidner 58 asks "Aimez-vous ces cartes?", Weidner 130 requests "des vue de paysage s.v.p.", and the message on Britton & Rey 594 requests postal exchange. "Thanks. Come again." on Weidner 133 and "Come again" on Müller 6 suggests that Nothomb visited California around the time of the 1906 earthquake.

Post-quake cards. Weidner 133, postmarked 5/04/1906, just over two weeks after the earthquake. Surprisingly, the message makes no mention of the quake; possibly Nothomb was visiting when it happened. Weidner 202, postmarked 10/22/1906.
