The description states:

COPENHAGEN – The CITY HALL SQUARE – the busy centre of the city. The City Hall was built about 1900 by the architect, Martin Nyrop. The building with the tower to the left is the “Palace Hotel”.

The postcard was mailed, and is dated July 23, 1953, so the picture depicts the square as it looked in the early 1950s.
