  1. Hi Jackie,

    Quite interesting. I suppose they don't allow photographs of the postcard.

    Thanks for sharing.
    Have a Happy Blue Monday!

  4. Now that's amazing...so when I grumble about having to use my old camera, I've got nothing to complain about ;D
    I'd have loved to see the photograph wouldn't you?
