Germany: More Carnival

We recognize on this card the advertisement appendix "M. Gühler, Bienen Honig". Officially the advertisement appendix has to be joined with a Germania stamp 1911.

Not here. In Bochum (Germany) someone got the idea to cancel the stamps on 11 November (11th month) 1911 at 11 hour, 11 minutes, 11 seconds.

In Western Europa "11" is the madness number. In carnival cities on 11.11 starts the official preparation to the carnival in February of the next year.
