(1940 ca.) Port Said, café arabe — Postcard

Postcard (13,5×8,5cm) of the “Union Postale Universelle/ Egypte”, ca. 1940, subtitled “Café arabe”, divided back, produced by Ephtimios Frères at Port Said. The photograph probably depicts a cafe in Cairo, Egypt, at the “Chareh Amir El-Giuche El-Guani” (Amir Al Gyosh Al Goani أمير الجيوش الجواني). The postcard was found at the Feira da Ladra de Lisboa in 2020.
The letter at the back, dated from Salvé (?) on the November 19, 1941, is addressed in Portuguese to the “Menino/ Luiz Filipe da Fonseca/ Gomelheiro/ Rua Lôpo Vaz 19/ Olivais/ Lisboa”, and was written by his grand mother Carolina.
