Today I have a selection of bridge postcards from around the world: two from the United States, one from Canada, and one from Ukraine:

ravenel-bridge

First is this card of the Ravenel Bridge in Charleston, South Carolina. I got this card from a Postcrossing forum swap, but I am not sure who sent it because it apparently got into the mailbox before the sender wrote anything other than “Hi Kate!” I think the sender meant to write more, but accidentally sent it too early.

US-2319012

This second card comes from Arkansas as an official Postcrossing card. It shows the Broadway Bridge that connects Little Rock and North Little Rock.

capilano-bridge2

The third card comes as a swap from Jason in Canada, who recently became a follower of the blog. Hi, Jason! It shows the Capilano suspension bridge in British Columbia. The bridge is 200 feet (61 meters) above the Capilano River. The first bridge here was built in 1889 and then replaced in 1903. Today about 800,000 people visit the bridge each year.

UA-664140

And finally, there is this Postcrossing card from Ukraine. In the background there are the Carpathian mountains. The card says that this spot is the geographical center of Europe.

The only new stamps came on Jason’s card:

CANADA-football

On the left is a 1994 stamp celebrating 100 years of the Grey Cup, the championship game of the Canadian Football League. On the right is a 1982 stamp for the International Philatelic Youth Exhibition.
