Postcard from Friesland

Postcard from Friesland: Boat on a lake

Postcard from Friesland: Boat on a lake (backside)

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

Two small boats on a presumably Frisian lake.

The card never ran, and I'm not sure how old it is, or where in Friesland it is. It is number 7 in the series "On and around the water". The texts on the back are in Frisian, the minority language of the province Friesland.

This postcard featured earlier in the post Water on my blog Roots.

It's a pity neither boat shows any sail marks identifying same. The design of the sailing boat resembles a pampus or rainbow class ship.
