Unfortunately, I have only the view side of this
picture postcard sent from Paramaribo nearly a century ago.
The view of the wide street shows a nice vision for Paramaribo.

The cover is franked with an 1890 2c carmine numeral (Scott 19).

The stamp has a nice hit of a Paramaribo squared circle.
The cancel is just about square on the nose.
