Card #3, Normandie!

This beautiful map card shows the Normandy region of France, and user Fylo comes specifically from the city of Caen. Caen is a very old city, well-known for the architecture built during the reign of William the Conqueror around the turn of the first millennium. Caen received heavy damage during fighting from World War II. This map card seems to indicate that this region of France is famous for several commodities, including particular varieties of cheese, apples, cider, and shellfish. Map cards generally seem to be among the most coveted types of postcards available. This postcard reached me after 8 days of travel on September 10.
