1919 paid in cash “15p makstud”, Võru-Tallinn

Postcard sent during War of Indepencence. Due to shortage of stamps paid in cash. Inscription “15p makstud/ametn. + signature” (15p paid/official + signature) from Võru + provisional postmark dated 5.2.1919. Võru was occupied by bolsheviks from 8. 12.1918 ‒ 1.2.1919, so it was liberated a few days before sending this card and that explains lack of stamps. Picture side depicts house of Friedrich Reinhold Kreutzwald who was an Estonian writer who is considered to be the father of the national literature for the country.
