Readers Question: Chōsen Sotokufu Teishin Kyoku Card?


My question concerns a card that was issued by Chōsen Sotokufu Teishin Kyoku and features a picture of chickens with an inscription in Korean. It appears that the design could have been issued as a New Year greeting. The Teishin Kyoku issued a set of post cards on October 1, 1910 commemorating the opening of the Governor General’s Office.

The first year of the rooster following the opening would have been 1921. I find it unusual that the card has Korean writing in the design – in this case encouraging people to save. Is anyone familiar with this card and can they provide more information such as when it was issued?
