A NURSE TENDS TO A WOUNDED SOLDIER WHILE SOLDIER’S COMRADE PROVIDES SUPPORT

This vintage real photo postcard features a nurse, wearing a red cross armband, tending to a wounded soldier. The soldiers comrade is providing support by putting his arm around the shoulder of his compatriot. Both men are armed. Note the backpack on the back of the standing soldier. In addition, note the medical supply box held by the nurse. The stamp box of this postcard has an interesting story. “NBC” (Neue Bromsilber Convention) was a price cartel established in 1909 that continued until the 1930’s. The purpose of the cartel was to ensure that the minimum price charged for postcards was kept at a sufficiently profitable level. A number of postcard publishing companies joined the cartel in an effort to stave off the effect of competition on the pricing of postcards. This card is part of a series (no. 6511/12). This postcard is in very good condition (see scans).
