This card was sent by my long-time friend, Annie. I've known Annie since she probably for over a decade or more. This card was sent from the UK while her and her husband now live there. It is a book cover card of The Case of the Dangerous Dowager; however, could this card could also be called "The Case of the Mysteriously Detouring Postcard." Much like this card which somehow was missent to Sri Lanka on a trip from the US state of Indiana to Germany, Annie's card arrived in Indiana with the below tag, showing that it had been originally "Missent to Australia"!
This card is of a VC-137C (Boeing 707) No. 26000 also known as "Air Force One". It is on display at the National Museum of the United States Air Force, however it is in a special hanger on base.
This particular aircraft was the plane that flew President John F. Kennedy both to Dallas and back to Washington following his assassination. The plane also was the one that President Nixon flew on to China.
The card shows the part of the museum where people can view the few moments of video that exists of Freud. However, when I went to the museum they were showing a Andy Warhol film of people laying down and making out/maybe having sex on a couch with other people around them. All I remember is in the film someone broke a glass or large light-bulb-looking-item over the couple and then started vacuuming the glass up.
This card was mailed with a bunch of other cards in a multi-card private swap from Poland. The card is from the Pilsudski Museum.
The man's speech bubble says "We are Independent!" and on his shirt is an image of Józef Piłsudski (5 December 1867 – 12 May 1935), leader of Poland prior to in the Interwar Period. The card is a celebration of Polish independence, which is celebrated today, November 11. Prior to November 11, 1918 (the same day as the end of the First World War) Poland had spent the past century carved up between the empires of Russia, Prussia, and Austria-Hungary.
Despite the card being mailed in an envelop, the sender attached a few Polish stamps to the postcard as well.
Direct swap from Tania in Ukraine. This was another of my favorite cards that someone saw that I had marked and decided to send to me. The image is a collage of Polaroids or postcards which are set in such a fashion to look like the country of Ukraine.
The message on the card says (in Ukrainian and English) "Did you know...that Ukraine is the largest country the territory of which is entirely situated in Europe"
A map of the Moscow Rapid Transit system. I love how complicated and yet beautiful it looks with all of the various colors and the brown ring-line connecting pretty much everything else. This card was originally a favorite of mine on Postcrossing that I wanted and that the sender noticed and decided to mail to me when she looked at my favorite cards.
