Ringhallen Alkoholfreies Restaurant Tea Room, Basel, Switzerland, RPPC postcard front; as is common in European establishments, the term "Tea Room" is given in English, presumably to attract English or American tourists. The fact that this establishment advertises itself as "Alkoholfreies" (Alcohol-Free) would seem to indicate a further interest in attracting customers who were friendly to the Temperance Movement. The date is not fiven on the card, but t is probably prior to the First World War.
