This is one of the rarer, hard-to-find designs in the multiple babies series. Toddlers and enfants are everywhere, from the rooftops to the street. Note that the kid with the bicycle is stopping the roadster with 14 babies to prevent it from running over the toddler in the street who has fallen. The sender scribbled on front "La Villa sans-gêne." Google and I can't pinpoint exactly what that means but possibly "the village without interference." I'm assuming this is alluding to children running amok with no parental supervision?:) The French text verso is of note, too. Although the sender didn't have a specific address, he helped the postman as much as he could: To Mr and Mrs. Hatte at the house of Mr. Bouvé at the Challes windmill by Parigné-l'Évêque (a small town southeast of Le Mans). Hand-dated July 14, 1909, this postcard is in overall fine antique condition with the slightest hints of wear at the corner tips.
