Notes: Frederick II, also known as Frederick the Great, was the king of Prussia from 1740-1786. This statue of him sitting on his favorite horse, Conde, is located along the Unter den Linden, a boulevard in Berlin.  The statue is 44 ft (13.5 m) tall, which you can't really see here because the card doesn't show the entire base.  I do love the way it show the shadow though.

Notes: This card shows the Castle Krukenberg at Helmarshausen.  As you can clearly see, the castle is in ruins, but it is still used for worship services and other events in the summer.  Obviously, it wouldn't be such a good idea to hold events there in the winter!
