The Salt Sea Baths

This beautiful place is located in Sweden on the coast of the Baltic Sea. And this postcard seems to be quite old. If I am reading our stamps correctly, it looks like 1921. Curiosity got the better of me and I looked up some images of this city now and it looks amazing. Very beautiful. Back to the post card, can't make heads or tails of the writing, of course, but I do love the stamps. The man on the stamp is Gustaf V, the king of Sweden from 1907 to 1950. He holds the record of being the oldest monarch of Sweden and the second-longest reigning. Who knew! Well, I guess Swedish people knew. My grandfather was Swedish, wouldn't he be happy to know I'm learning something about the place he came from.
