A postcard from County Wicklow, just south of County Dublin. This card shows the interior part of this coastal county, countryside with beautiful landscape. The Glenmacnass River flow through this picturesque valley and joins Avonmore River. This place is near to Laragh (An Láithreach). Thanks fisherman. Orange-colored bar code was printed at the bottom of this side indicating it is pass through the postal delivering system.

Well, I have to show the whole card at the back. There is no trace of postmarking or stamp on this side. Only the airmail label is there.

Wheat field near Brandon, Manitoba. A common scene at flatland with farm house surrounded by trees to block wind. Thanks AlliKat.

Many stamps were used to pay the postage. A 54-cent La crosse stamp and two P-value stamps were used. Also, two low value definitive stamps, 1cent bookbinding and 2cents decorative silverwork, were added. The machine cancellation is not clearly printed. So, two handstamped box stamps with 5-straight line were used to cancel the stamps.
