Street in Lille Following the Explosion on January 11, 1916 (April 3, 1917)
This postcard comes from the same series as the previous one. Postcards were usually sold in series of six, and images in a series generally shared a common subject. Thus, it makes sense that both of these postcards were sent to Christine Roller by the same solider, Lieutenant Max Kessler.

The postcard reads as follows:

3.4.17 (Postmark April 3, 1917)

Dear Nurse Christine!
Sending you many heartfelt Easter greetings.
Your Max Kessler (Lieutenant)

From: Second Lieutenant Kessler
Bavarian Mobile Command Post
German Forces Mail 402
