Object:"Railway Station Bistrik Near Sarajevo"
Description:People wearing urban clothes are standing on the platform outside the railway station. A train belonging to the Bosnian-Hercegovinian state-owned railway (B. H. St. B.) has pulled into the station and some people are looking out of the train windows.

On the back there is an advertisement for the so-called 'Bezweberei' ('Umjetničko-obrtnički zavod') which was established in Sarajevo in 1886 as an applied art center. Uncirculated postcard.
