Kupiškis 1917

A postcard of Kupischki, now Kupiškis, Lithuania. It is actually very difficult to say from which Feldpost station it has been sent. There is a postmark without a date of Bahnhof Prekuln which is the present day Priekule railway station in Latvia, just 15km from the present Lithuanian border. This mark tells us that it went throught Priekule station, not necessarily "from" Priekule. Not to be confused with Priekulė in Lithuania which the german name is Prökuls. The sender has put the date: october 10th 1917 but the location is unreadable.
Acquired in 2010 in Berlin.
