SIGNED

Original postcard of some Swedish children in costume. Sent by Sam Mussabini, the successful athletics coach best known for his work with Harold Abrahams, to his daughter Monica while attending the 1912 Summer Olympics in Stockholm. It was written on July 6th, just a few days before he coached William Applegarth to a gold and a bronze medal, and he confided that he was "rather anxious to finish here and get home again".

Corners knocked off and there are some light creases. Stamp removed. Good.
