Personifications of Alsace and Lorraine in a German postcard. Lorraine looks to France, but Alsace to Germany, a point made by the poem.
Text:
Dass Lothringia schaut nach Frankreich hin
Das tritt hier deutlich zu Tage.
Alsatia hat einen andren Sinn,
Das macht geographische Lage!
That Lorraine looks to France
This is clearly evident here.
Alsatia has another sense,
That makes geographical location!
