There are two Mount Everest Expedition stamps on the face of the card, the upper one tied by a red Expedition Rongbuk Glacier Base Camp handstamp. Fine.

This charred picture post card of Lyon has had the stamp washed off, presumably when extinguishing the fire, and a two line handstamp applied. 'CORRESPONDANCE RETARDEE / PAR SUITE D'UN INCENDIE.' Although not a lot is known of this incident, it does appear as though there was a considerable delay before the mail was delivered as items are known arriving only on 13 January 1919.
