The Train Station in the Congo (1921)

Congo Belge   Port de Matadi.  Station du chemin de fer Matadi-Leopoldville. (French language)
Belgisch Congo  Haven van Matadi.  Stalie van den spoorweg Matadi-Leopoldville. (Dutch language)

English Translation:
Belgian Congo (now called: Democratic Republic of the Congo)  Matadi Port.  Matadi-Leopoldville Train Station.

This is postmarked in 1921 with a Belgian Congo stamp pre-printed on the postcard.  It looks like there were two more stamps on the card, but someone took them off.
