    Oh my goodness, Joe2007, you have quite a variety of "locations" (cities/states) in your collection. and they represent quite a few years/decades, and dare I say centuries, don't they?

    I mostly go by subject matter. If it catches my eye and is being offered at a good price, I find it hard to resist.

    I've heard sports card collectors refer to their hobby as "cardboard crack" and I can certainly see why they refer to it this way.

    Do you know what's going on in the last card?

    I was discussing that with the seller of the card. Looks like and indoor market somewhere in Eastern Europe. You can see the animal carcasses in the foreground. The location of the card and the writing on the back is in a foreign language that I and the seller didn't know. I was thinking Poland or another of the Slavic countries.

    I was wondering about butchering versus skinning for pelts. Tried to read the bigger signs and could not tell what language either - although I was in the same general area.

    Makanudo There is no such thing as simple.Simple is hard.

    The language on the card is czechoslovakian and it seems to be a very large market, so it must be in a big city. Dresses though look typical for slovak women, so my guess is some of the bigger slovak cities

    Some cards from an inexpensive bulk lot, so I have a few cents in each of these.
