Being connected ancestrally to the small Ardennes village of Arsdorf, the birthplace of my maternal grandfather, I enjoy collecting the village’s postal history.
International incoming mail to Arsdorf is understandably elusive, so the postcard seen here from Boma in the Belgian Congo was a delightful recent discovery! The card is dated 25 December 1926 at Souga and was posted from Boma. The Arsdorf receiving cancel is dated 17 January 1927. The card shows a real photo of children in Souga. It’s franked with three singles of the 1923 25c basket weaving pictorial.
