Here is a leather post card that I found in the collection of stamps I got two weeks ago. Any thoughts on this? I keep finding more treasures in my stamp purchase. I also found a bunch of coins from around the world.

    These leather postcards were popular in the very early 20th century.

    The condition of this example is a little rough.

    Famous building from "Sophia", Bulgaria??

    Thanks Scott. I thought Sophia sent the card. Lol
    The date 1903 is just to the left of the stamp.

    Looks like you are correct on the name-- I just blew up the photo and now I see that the "Sophia" is NOT part of the picture, but was done by hand with ink.

    I don't know the building or location.

    The postmark looks like it is from Dorchester. Anyone know of a building there that would resemble the one on the card?

    Sure looks like the Boston, MA post office.
