There is no description on the back of this card.

In the left background is the iconic water jet, still present today in the lake. In the right background, as described by the legend on the card, is the Palais des Nations. However, the Palais has been moved to a new building a short distance away, and this building is now the President Wilson Hotel, named for the same United States President.

This card likely dates from the 1920s.
