Greetings Postcard Pals. Below are some of the standout postcards I have received from my generous postcard friends.

I've also included some I've sent myself from significant or interesting locations or just bought for fun. All my postcards are uploaded to my Flickr.

You'll see I also enjoy fancy stamps too. Want to trade? Read on.

Found Postcards. Fond Memories.

 As the tribulations of the COVID crisis continue, those of us stuck at home might find themselves clearing out the dark, dusty recesses of the cupboard or writing desk. 

All too often those mysterious nooks and crannies reveal long-lost treasures. Long dried-out ballpoint pens stolen during a forgotten hotel stay, boarding passes from defunct airlines or postcards from friends and family who haven't had a Christmas card since before the fall of the Berlin Wall.

For your amusement, I've found a few cards that remind me of times gone by. Perhaps even one from you.

Sent home to my daughter from Soweto. 1999.
