Illustrated in the postcard the The Abbey of Saint Denis. The foreground shows the abbey sitting on a corner. The steps to the Abbey are blocked off with a metal fence between stone columns. Street lamps are spaced around the barracade. Two people, a man and little girl are walking away from the structure. Across the street on the left is another fence that looks like it might be wooden, it too has several street lamps. Down the sidwalk on the left side of the Abbey stretches more fencing, taller than the front. Steps lead up on the side of the Abbey. The middleground is the main doors leading to the inside of the Abbey. The doors are described in information taken from the internet about the Abbey. More sculpture is seen above the two side entrances at the front of the building, while a large possibly stained glass window is above the main entrance. There are more sculptured windows and statues above this. The main entrance has at the top a round sculpture that is explained in the attached information. The tower has louvered windows on two levels and a slanted room completes it. The background of the abbey is more of the church itself showing Gothic designs along the side with a steep slanting roof. Trees and other buildings are visible. A light blue sky is dotted with fluffy clouds.
