In: from the United Kingdom - of Mail, Transport and Peter Rabbit

Mail transport, a tram and the railway station, to my opinion always nice themes to see. And I was happy that John sent these in one postcard!

On the back side more vehicles:

Also related to mail is of course the mailbox, a famous one from the United Kingdom is the red pillar box:

The stamp on the back side of this card is a 'bridge' to a postcard John had sent me some time ago, namely an illustration by Beatrix Potter of a character from the tales of Peter Rabbit. This is Benjamin Bunny, Peter's cousin:

The card sent / received previously shows Peter Rabbit himself, plus a squirrel and Jemima Puddle-Duck:

Peter Rabbit also shows up on a stamp, accompanied by a stamp of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle, the hedgehog:

Thank you very much, John!

  1. A pleasure, as always. I'm aiming to send you and our Spanish / Moroccan friend the whole set of Beatrix Potter stamps eventually.

    1. And I've got four stamps so far, on beautiful postcards! Many thanks, John!

  2. So kind and thoughtful of yours, John! Yesterday I was surprised by an other one on a beautiful card. Thank you!!
