Mr Punch and Judy vintage postcard and English nutcracker

Here is one vintage Punch and Judy theme postcard. Mr Punch is hugged by a little girl.
Postcard from Germany, posted in 1898. Found just by coincidence, while looking for old street views of Polish cities and towns.  I could not help myself purchasing it and presenting here. It's absolutely charming. Anyone interested a little bit in old fairy tales can easily notice that there is one more interesting issue about this postcard - name Haensel refers to Brothers Grimm's "Hansel and Gretel" story .... .
