Berta Benz in Pforzheim

A beautiful re-creation of the historic moment when Berta Benz (wife of Karl Benz) telegraphed home to Mannheim of her safe arrival in Pforzheim, thereby completing the first long-distance automobile journey (194km) and a public relations triumph for Benz automobiles. Thank you Sabine for this thoughtful card which enlightened and delighted me.
