44th DS


The Palace of Westminster, a very famous London landmark and also home to the British Parliament (the Canadian one looks similar, minus Big Ben.) Despite that this card was sent from Germany, the sender was fortunate enough to travel to London twice (if I understood him correctly) this year. I'm so jelly XD

Headstone from the original grave of Canada's Unknown Soldier, 1920

This is one of the reasons why we celebrate Nov 11th every year, to thank the soliders who bravely fought in WWI. This card is also from the Canadian War Museum, amazingly there is a Mercedes limo that was used by Hitler in their collection 0_= Really awesome stuff from the good ol' Canada to Canada Tag~

I think it's an ad-card but not sure and not sure what for either, I do like the contrast between the two pictures. Now if only the year of the right photo wasn't chopped off.
