Old Styled Germany Postcard
Today I am showing an old styled black and white postcard sent by Igor f Mulheim, Germany. Igor has a postcard blog (doesn't everybody these days).It is called Ansichtskarten and More and is located at http://webmastermarkt.blogspot.com . The picture on the postcard shows an old historical picture of the Ruhr area. Igor used 2 stamps and the one on the left shows bellevue Castle, issued in 2007 . The castle was built between 1785 and 1786 for Prince Ferdinand of Prussia. It is now the official residence of The President of Germany in Berlin. Note the flag flying on the building- this means that The President is present.
The 2nd stamp , also issued in 2007 commemorates the thousand year anniversary of The City of Furth. Furth is located in Northern Bavaria , Germany. A couple of famous people born in Furth are German writer and novelist Jakob Wassermann and the 56th U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger. American actress Sandra Bullock once lived in Furth for a time.
Thanks Igor for this card.
