Tour du Monde par 3 Belges. Il Torno del Mondo. A votre générosité.

Regular price $35.00 $0.00

[Italy?]: Circa 1920. 4-3/4" x 2-3/4". White cardstock printed in black, with half-tone illustration of two men and a woman in matching uniforms. Light soiling, faint semi-circular crease to one edge. Very Good.

A mendicant card for three young Belgian would-be world travelers. We presume the trio was more aspirational than successful in their plans, given that they only made it as far as Italy (at least) before they resorted to begging for funds to continue on their trek.

Mendicant cards are uncommon, and one showing a woman traveling with two men is particularly unusual.
