Belongs to the category of historical, i.e., historically themed postcards. Historical cards in this collection frequently make reference to both the 1905 lois des associations, legislating the separation of church and state in France, and the First World War, when recognition of the Church's role in the war effort was expressed through the depiction of Daughters of Charity as supplicants and combat nurses.
