This postcard depicts two old men relaxing over tea and tobacco and talking politics. The newspaper that they're reading is called Droeba, or 'The Times.' Published from 1866 until it was shutdown by the Russian viceroy in 1885, Droeba was the leading Georgian newspaper of its day and offered a platform for major intellectuals such as Ilia Chavchavadze and Ivane Machabeli.
