I received this anonymous envelope in March or April of this year. I simply love all the postcards inside, down to the cute monkey sticker that the sender placed in front, but apart from the Alstadt Regensburg Unesco Stamp there is nothing in this mail that will give me a clue as to who among my numerous swap mates sent it. When I googled the words written in the Post Office stamp, though, I got Briefzentrum 38 which actually stands for the Deutsche Post #38 found in Braunschweig. Still it does not ring a bell. + there is no way I can trace the address back to the person I’ve originally swapped with. I would’ve loved to know + give him or her proper credits!
Oh well, let me just share with you the contents of this mysterious envelope, shall I? It has 4 lovely cards inside starting with this beautiful view of Vienna 1, The State Opera. According to the card, this opera house is known all over the world + was inaugurated in 1869. The other cards included in the package are: Blick von der Bergstation, with that impressive looking cable car, along with two vintage cards of Dresden Um 1625 + Dresden UM 1650. I have no other information to share about these cards as no description are written in the back + what’s actually written is in German, which unfortunately I do not understand.
Anyhoo, I’d love to share the majestic view of Vienna 1 The State Opera to:
