This interesting postcard shows Prussia’s famous King Frederick the Great (1712-1786) standing on the rear steps of legendary castle Sanssouci, which he built during his reign (1740-1786). The castle remains open in Potsdam today. It is one of the most impressive and beautiful in all Germany. Friedrich is flanked by two of his beloved dogs. Below him is the caption “Der alte Fritz in Sanssouci.” The postcard was mailed from Potsdam in 1938. Its postage stamp bears the image of the by-then-defunct Weimar Republic’s late President, Generalfeldmarschall Paul von Hindenburg, who had died in 1934.
