Letter sent in 1949

This letter card was sent to my dad in 1949 from a girl he obviously admired. I asked my dad about her and he claimed to not remember!
My dad used Zantis until about 1975 when he reverted to Zantiotis.

This letter was sent to my father Stephen, from his cousin, Manolis Koukoulis in 1949.

Old postcard of Hora - what year?

Postcard found in a box of my mothers photos.
Does anyone know the year ? (I am guessing earlier than 1970 and the fancy edging tells me a few decades before that?) And what does it say on the back??
