Card 1--Odense Denmark~Albani Torv~St. Alban's Church~Sankt Albani Kirke~flower market
Postmarked:1954? in Aarhus, Denmark
On the corner of Thomas B. Thriges Street and the street Skt. Knud's Square is Albani Torv. Historically, Albani Torv was one of the city's most important trading areas and dates back to the mid-16th century.
St. Alban's Church (Danish: Sankt Albani Kirke) is the Roman Catholic parish church of Odense, Denmark. The foundation for the new church was placed on October 21, 1906, and on October 25, 1908, the unfinished building was consecrated and dedicated to Our Lady, Saint Alban, and Saint Canute. The church is neogothic. The structure was designed by German architect L. Schneider from Breslau. The glass paintings were created by Georg Schneider of Regensburg in Bavaria. The organ was created by the company Gebrüder Rieger, from Jägerndorf in Austrian Silesia, and the altar piece was created in 1908 by Konrad Martiner from Sankt Ulrich in Tyrol. The church was - and remains - a focal point for immigrants, namely Germans and Poles, and in recent years also an increasing number of Vietnamese Catholics.

Printed on front:Arenberg, Grotte von Lourdes
Published by:Verlag Carl Lemaire, Arenberg
Lourdes Grottos are replicas of the Grotto of Massabielle in Lourdes in southern France and Our Lady of Lourdes. In this grotto in 1858 St. Bernadette saw the Mother of God. On the site of the Marian apparitions, a Madonna figure adorns the grotto.
Especially towards the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century, such Lourdes grottos were consecrated inside of Our Lady in Lourdes and other Catholic churches, on churchyards or as a corridor monument at a crossroads, on the edge of the field or in the woods. Lourdes grottos are important objects of local pilgrimages.
Founder of the pilgrimage Arenberg was pastor Johann Baptist Kraus (1805-1893). The pilgrimage church of St. Nicholas was built from 1860-1872. In 1864, Pastor Kraus brought the sisters of the Dominican nuns to Arenberg, who founded the Monastery of Arenberg, for the care of the landscape picture Bible, which is unique in Europe. The monastery now houses an educational and recreational center.
