Miss Maggie Mailbox looks forward to the Peebles postcard arriving sometime soon to her residence. 8-)
In the meantime where is this postcard located ? PU post 2000.

PU = postally used?

Looks rather like some place in South Australia, actually!

Well if I’d have said Auckland in the first place I would probably have been as close as I’m likely to get because even Papatoetoe is in greater Auckland according to Mr Google.

As I'm Dutch I'm not really accustomed to the whole greater city terms, we do not have that here, but Auckland is correct. On the card only Auckland is mentioned so I thought I would let the person win that mentioned the name Auckland first. :lol:
