Pretty Paris Card

Paris

When first looking at this card, it is hard to believe it was mailed in 1945. It looks like it could be sold today! This is a view of the Pantheon in Paris in the background. I love the reflection being shown in the fountain. I bought a lot of cards on eBay a few months ago that were all mailed by Staff Sergeant Edwin Wakely during World War II. Most of the cards were mailed to Aileen Willhoite, including this one, and she appears to be Edwin’s sister.
