French text on back: 

Cousin,
Cette carte représente bien une scène Ontarienne dans les forêts du nord. Ces trappeurs voyagent ainsi non pas parce que les chevaux manquent mais les chiens ont une plus grande rapidité sur la neige. Remarquez les traines sauvages, les raquettes et plus loin les montagnes. Cette scène fut prise à une cinquantaine de milles de Sudbury.
The card represents very well an Ontarian scene in northern forests. These trappers travel this way not because there are no horses but because dogs are faster on the snow. Notice the toboggan the snowshoes and further on the mountains. This scene was taken about fifty miles from Sudbury.

 

At top "Le Rouzic Vannes". Vannes is a town in France. There was an archeologist living in Vannes by that name.

Based on ‘AZO’ photographic paper used, dates from 1924-1949

Crease LR corner, some cracking bottom LR edge.
