This postcard that portrays two young nurses was produced by the established printing house A A Levenson and Co in Moscow. Posters, theatre bills, fine illustrated editions and artist books were among specialities of this printing house. A series of postcards was printed especially for Russian wounded soldiers and sent to hospitals at the Front. This postcard was sent to the 1st Army, which was in action at the Western and North-Western Fronts. Semen Shevtsov (the surname is not very clear, though) who received this card, fought in the 81 infantry regiment which was formed of volunteers from Moscow.
