Vintage postcard with a photo of a happy family ca. 1970s. In the den or playroom, Dad reads a storybook to his young son while Mom plays a zither with her little girl.

This is one of a group of postcards purchased in Cairo, Egypt in the late 1980s (although the photograph seems to be many years older). See the second scan for the reverse of the postcard, showing the Arabic text.

Size: Postcard is approximately 4 x 6 inches.

Condition: No writing on the postcard. The reverse is lightly tanned with age. Very minor wear to the front; some minor imperfections and specks from the printing or developing process.
