An intriguing postcard, probably pre-WW1, although it could be later - is the "Canada" sign a reference to prohibition? Canada actually introduced prohibition in 1918, two years before the US, although individual provinces began repealing the laws in the mid-1920s.  The US didn't repeal its anti-alcohol laws until 1933.  The card was "Printed in Saxony".
