Germany, Evansville (Ind.)


Jesus, holding a staff in his left hand, is knocking on a wooden door to a stone building with his right hand. Vines and trees are visible in the background. The back of the card has an inscription memorializing Father J. Kilian Schott, a priest in Evansville, Indiana who passed away on September 13, 1930. The inscription includes a prayer for the repose of his soul. This card was published by the B. Herder Book Company of Saint Louis, Missouri, but was printed in Germany.
