Scope and Content

Postcard saying Bowerman was leaving for Odessa. 'Don't expect to hear again for some time.

'Postcard of a black and white photograph of a crowd of people in a snowy scene, by what seems to be a frozen lake, possibly in Russia. All the people are wearing black, and are gathered on the front. Grand buildings, some with domes and spires, in the right of the picture, look out across the lake. Taken from quite high up. On the reverse is a manuscript message, some printed text in Russian, and a stamp in English. Note: the postcard was posted from a ship and has no postage stamp. Posted on the way to Moscow, part of a journey to Odessa in the Ukraine.
