Hello postcard and mail enthusiasts! It has been a month since my last post but now I have turned in my thesis and the end of college is in sight, so I should be less and less stressed and busy in the coming weeks.

If you guessed that they are also music records, what a good guess! The first one plays The Beatles’ “Paperback Writer” and “Rain,” while the second one plays Louis Armstrong’s “Ramona.” The image on the second card is a painting by Stanislaw Rozwadowski called “Polowanie z gończymi na lisa” which means something about hunting dogs.

These types of cards were mostly made in Poland in the 60’s and 70’s.
