The 2nd part includes old black and white postcards of Queen Wilhelmina and Prince Hendrik their daughter Princess Juliana from 1910 to 1926, the year when Queen and Prince celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary . The postcards are mostly photographs of royal visits in the country, where Princess Juliana often is present or whether official visits of foreign monarchs and statesmen in our country. In addition, there are official portraits and good wishes on the occasion of birthdays or anniversaries and images of royal private activities, such as visiting the ice rink. This is a original reprint of the first edition of 1973. It is unfortunate that the issue has not been updated with a few minor adjustments, allowing  a phrase like “the Crown Prince of Japan, the current Emperor of Japan would be adjusted. Nevertheless this a nice bundle (especially older) of the House of Orange fans. The choice gives a good impression of the visits of the royal family, and the effort they took to go and show Juliana among the people. The foreword is short and clear. The postcards printed very well.
