Successive number: 003/KK PLACE: Nesseltal EVENT: DATE: 27. 12. 1898 ANNOUNCE: Die HeiMAT Koprivnik … a beautiful village this used to be. 2006. PUBLISHER: Franz Göderer, Gottschee PHOTOGRAPHER: - NOTES: postcard - lithography
Gruss aus Gottschee (Greetings from Kočevje) is written on the beautiful lithographic print. A more suitable title might be Greetings from the Kočevska region. In the top left corner in fact are the ruins of the castle Kostel (nowadays the castle is experiencing a rebirth). Despite the picture of the main street in Kočevje, a kind of ‘promenade’, we cannot overlook the central illustration of Koprivnik. From the area behind the village (in the local dialect called Sandriegl) stand out the lovely pastures on Grič (Gritsch). In the upper part of the village, called Nakl, on the right by the pond stand out the homesteads of the Meditz (Nesselthal 52), Stefandl (Neselthal 51) and Stonitsch (Nesselthal 50) families. Only countryman Mihael Ruppe could have drawn such a beautiful postcard, but he probably did not. Forester Franz Goderer from Kočevje is who published it. It was made in the years 1897-98, a fact to which our attention is called by the postmark. It was sent from Kočevje to Škofljica pri Ljubljani on the 30. 3. 1898.
