Each postcard has some interesting history/facts on the back that each person shared about where the postcard was coming from. I can honestly say with certainty that you do learn something new everyday! I didn't know that Sir Charles Gilbert designed the red phone booths, that they came about about in in a 1924 competition, or that they're seen in in current as well as former British colonies across the world. I thought they were just in the UK!
The place in the Poland postcard used to be a watering place and now it's located in a region of coal mines!
The card from Germany said that Emlichheim has only 14,343 inhabitants! She said the photos on the postcard are old, bt I absolutely love it.
I hope everyone learned something new by reading this post and I hope you enjoy the postcards.
