This postcard with a view of North Szechuen (Sichuan) Road was sent from Lida in Shanghai to Anna Fischer in Moscow, in February 1914:
"Dear Anna, Why aren't you writing? I've sent you many postcards. I think not all the post gets through. Shura Neimann has not received any either. Someone has been stealing the stamps. Write me. Kisses and hugs. Lida"
Well, at least, this postcard got through – and in less than two weeks! If someone stole the stamps, it must have been the collector.
