This card from 1984 features an Olympic torch runner for the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angles. The card is a pre-paid stamp card with the image on the front working as the stamp; however, the price of postage has gone up quite a bit since 1984 so the sender had to put on additional postage.
This card features a view of Buckingham Fountain in Chicago. One of the largest fountains in the world, the fountain was inspired by some at the Palace of Versailles and was dedicated on August 26, 1927.
This card comes from Madrid, Spain and features a polaroid-like postcard of items for sale at a store with their price tags given in Euro. The website listed on the back ends in a suffix of .cat, which I'm assuming would stand for Catalonia.
This card was sent 39 years ago today from Klama, Washington on November 29, 1977. My parents sent this card to my aunt.
While this card is awesome because of the fact that it is old and it has a family connection, people who know recent history will notice that this card was sent a few years before Mount Saint Helens and Spirit Lake were forever changed by the May 18, 1980 eruption, killing approximately 57 people and changing the face of both the mountain and Spirit Lake.
