Saint Florianus, better known as Saint Florian, dressed in the attire of a Roman soldier, pours water from a pitcher onto a small burning structure. Saint Florian is the patron saint of firefighters, and his protection is often invoked against fires. The back of the card has a handwritten inscription. This card was printed by a German publisher in the early twentieth century.
