A little bit of Belgium in Luxembourg—another geographically-challenged postal card

Last month’s geography lesson was “Luxembourg, France.”
Today’s lesson is “Arlon, Luxemburg”

Monastyriska, Austria
[today part of the Ukraine]
,
21 Feb 1895, to “Arlon, Luxemburg.”

Luxembourg-Gare, 24 Feb 1895, 11:00 a.m.-Noon.

Arlon [Belgium!], 24 Feb 1895, 10:00 p.m.

Improperly sent at the printed matter rate,
so the 2-kretzer Polish-text card was taxed 15 centimes.

Well, until 1839 Arlon was part of the Grand Duchy!
