Description Postcard: Greetings from Hoboken, N.J. Compliments from Prof. M. Loewy. Postmarked Dec. 5, 1906. Divided back. 3-7/16" x 5-7/16" wide.

Publisher not indicated. Stock number: 812 IV.

Depiction of two boys playing with model boats at a pond or marsh. Card imprinted by Morris Loewy who published some postcards or had them specially imprinted for him; a postcard collector. While the scene could plausibly be Hoboken, the back has European postal card imprinting, the style of the stock number and the divided back (in the year before they became allowed in U.S.) all suggest this was an overseas stock card imported and imprinted by Loewy.
