The Last of January

Well it is the last of January, so with any luck I'll get this one in before tomorrow. My first card is from Belgium. On it are cut away designs of four Imperial Airways aircraft,  The Greatest Air Service in the World, at least that's what is written on the card. From looking at these planes and flying boats, air travel looked like a lot more fun than it does today.

Meelis used 2 stamps from 2012. They are 2 of 10 in a self adhesive booklet of Autumn Tree Leaves.

This next card comes from Russia and features the Smolny Cathedral in Saint Petersburg. It was built between 1748 and 1764.

The card is from a Russian Postcrosser who used a 2012 Sochi Winter Olympic Games stamp . It is 1 of 4 in the set. This one shows Orekhovsky Waterfall , one of the highest and most powerful falls on the Black Sea coast. .

I remember when the Sochi Games were 100 days away, now they are just a week. GO CANADA GO. 

Here's a card with a typical winter scene in Tampere , Finland. 

Another card from a Postcrosser. The stamp used is from a set of 5 self adhesives issued in 2013 featuring Autumn scenes. 

Today's last card is a 1993 photo of Jerry Garcia taken in Indianapolis. Mr Garcia ( 1942-1995) is best known for his lead guitar work, singing and songwriting with the band the Grateful Dead. 

Yu from China, but studying now in the U.S used a bunch of stamps on this one. We have the 2004 Chippendale Chair, the 2008 Tiffany Lamp, the 2003 American Clock and the 2007 American Toleware. Top right is the 2010 Nevada State Flag stamp and bottom right is the 2013 Battle of Lake Erie Forever stamp.

That's it for this time and for January. See you in February.  Thanks to all whose cards I have featured here today.
