Color postcard of three cubs of a white tiger at the National Zoological Park. The front of the postcard has a white border. The postcard is unused, but the message side has a printed note about the white tiger: "The first white tiger bred outside of India, is shown with his normal-color litter-mates. The tiger triplets are the first born to Samson and Mohini Rewa, the National Zoo's rare white tiger."
