I find it hard to believe that you've run out of postcards to post to this thread puffin!

Here's one I found in one of my boxes:

2021-08-31_215334 b blank.jpg


It was used in 1956.

I doubt if you'd see much Cyrillic script where my card came from nowadays - and you'd have seen none at all in 1956.

It is quite a classic picture. The building was a hotel but has now been demolished and a high rise building occupies the site.

Bermuda is somewhere I always thought I wouldn't mind visiting ... But I don't know if I ever will.

Me too. Even bought a guide book once, but that was as far as we got! Very expensive.....

Next card -something different. Where is this?
No exact date for this, might make it too easy - make your own estimate.
