Postcard from Haarlem

Postcard from Haarlem

Postcard from Holland is a regular feature on this blog. On Wednesdays I post a card from my collection of vintage postcards. Today: A postcard from Haarlem.

St. Johannes de Deo (St. John of God) hospital in Haarlem. The hospital dates from the late 19th century, and closed in 2006. Originally, it was a Roman Catholic men's hospital.

The hospital area will be redeveloped, and the old hospital building will be integrated into the new developments.

The postcard was sent just over a century ago, on 25 January 1909.

I love old postcards and have been collecting them since I was a kid. This one is really terrific.
Thanks for sharing!
