Rahva Raamat - Sajandijagu armastust - Century of Love
Rahva Raamat is a book business with long-standing traditions, which has been in operation in Estonia since the year 1912. Today Rahva Raamat has ten bookstores in seven different cities. This card is from Pärnu Rahva Raamat bookstore.
When I visited Tallinn last summer I stopped at one special antique book store (Raamatukoi, Harju 1.) in the Old Town. In this shop there are the old books neatly arranged and easy to search. I bought only some books and a big stack of art postcards :)
