My First March Cards

Hello again. It may be almost a week into March but this is my first appearance for the month. Busy all the weekend with my grandkids' soccer. But I do have five cards to have a look at.

The first is from the USA and shows a view of LAX - Los Angeles International Airport. That's a beautiful and spectacular 360 degree view of the airport, not a bad place to have a meal, if you're into airplanes landing and taking off.

A PostCrosser named Yoli used 3 stamps on this one. On the left is a 2015 stamp from the Summer Harvest set of 4. In the middle is 1 of 5 stamps in the 2012 Bonsai Trees issue. Over on the right is a recent 2016 Flag definitive.

The second card for this time arrived from Smolensk, Russia - one of  Russia's oldest cities, it dates back to 863. The card shows a Russian Diesel locomotive , very much like the M62.

Veronika who dreams of becoming a pilot sent this card. The large stamp on the right that she used was issued in 2016 and is 1 of 4 in a Contemporary Russian Art set.

A card from Jobbo is next, this time sent from Malaysia. Displayed on the card is the former Kuala Lumpur Railway Station, designed by British architect A.B. Hubback. From the outside , it looks more like a hotel than a railway station. It's not like any railway station that I remember.

Jobbo used 2 stamps, on the left is one from 2007. It is 1 of 4 in a set issued to commemorate 50 Years of Independence. The other stamp was issued in 2004, it is 1 of 3 in a Traditional Transport set.

The next 2 cards are from Anne Marie and she was visiting Birmingham , U.K. so the cards are from there. The first card is a view of the city centre at night as seen from Pritchatt Tower.

Anne Marie's second card is a look at the Canals of Birmingham.

Both of Anne Marie's card arrived with the same stamp. It's a Machin definitive, one of the many.

There you have it. Another one in the books. Thanks for cards go out to Yoli, Veronika , Jobbo and Anne Marie. Drop back again soon. Take care.
