Description

A man with a pointed beard stands next to a seated woman holding a piece of paper. A dog wearing a coat which has "Flora" written on it is at the woman's feet. Strange red birds run across the sand toward the couple. In the background smugglers or pirates are preparing to bury their treasure while a cannon is fired toward them from an offshore ship. The letter "S" is in the lower left corner of the card. The publishing information is from similar identified cards on the Internet.
