    Parley-vous Francais?

    (Can't upload the other picture). Nothing is changed. I'm lucky to be able to upload one picture.)

    Does anyone know what this means? Thanks for help!

    from the looks it was an envelope? it contained feathers of this bird https://www.oiseaux.net/birds/photos...n.grackle.html. were they found there? did the finder live there?https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wescosville,_Pennsylvania. both variants could be right.
    can you turn the picture around and also post a screenshot from the other writing?

    Here is the other picture. It was in the envelope, someone's lock of hair, looks like? Maybe the "grackle" thing is some sort of French slang word for woman? The envelope was inside a French-language Bible, printed in 1952.

    Bennie, my friend got a bunch of paper ephemera from an auction. She sent me this photo. It says "R.M. 21.20" on one ticket (in the middle). The "R.M." would be "Reichsmarks"? So that would make it pre-World War 2? After World War they re-named it to "Deutsch Marks" right? I am going to trade her old maps and paper tickets, also Beamtengesetz book from 1937, for a dollhouse.

    dont think so, it says - Common Grackle- , also a BIRD. for the lock of hair i have no explaination. suppose the person who had it knew what ii was, or who sent it, gave it as a present. and no more explanation was needed? https://translate.yandex.ru/?lang=fr...r%201%20ou%202 maybe try your hand on translation for this one yourself? - 3 to 6 tablets per day, starting with one or two... - I was digging around and found something about those SARPAGAN Tablets. Unfortunately, a detailed story is there only in german language, if those are the right things http://mit-phytaminen-heilen.com/hei...pagandha.html? treatment in the Ayurvedic medicine for anything from sleeplessness to heart problems...since it has a -Laboratory- stamp at the bottom, could be worth investigating more?

    I was trying to connect the lock of hair with the pencil writing, but you are right, there's no connection. The hair likely belongs to "Bridge", taken on 5-January-1959.

    Also got this and maps of Karlsruhe and Freiburg....

    Bennie do you know if this company is still in business? "Reclama-Universal Bibliothek"? I searched and found they used to produce many "help" books in this genre. I gather this book is about civil service work, but Ebay will probably say it "glorifies Nazism" and delete my listing...



    Also this book, 1887, maybe last copy ever? I can find nothing about it on Google.

    it is not the -Bibliothek- that you should contact. but the printer. WOLF in Heidelberg. and as you see from the link, they are still in business. and that since 1920..https://wolf-etiketten.de/de/profil/
    and the second booklet - prophylactic for the health or the eyes- there must be maybe on the inside or the back more information who printed it.
