In English

Unwritten and undated postcard, probably ~ 1902.
Published by Hjalmar Appeltoffts Bokhandel (bookshop), Kalmar (founded in 1885).

Borgholm is the main city of Öland [island off the east coast of Sweden], but one of the smallest cities in Sweden. The city received its charter in 1816 and emerged as a spa-town in the shadow of the ruins of the once mighty Borgholm Castle, which burned down in 1806.
