I received this picture from my grandmother's estate. I think it's a beautiful drawing and was just wondering what the writing said and what you think the date of it might be. I think it may be post war, possibly 1950's. First pic is complete drawing, 2nd is lower left, 3rd is upper right, 4th is lower right.

Thanks!!

Rick
