On Tuesday I got a great postcard from the Netherlands. The card shows the Prinsengracht in Amsterdam.
Amsterdam is the capital city of and the largest city in the Netherlands. Amsterdam is a important financial centre.
The start of construction of the the Prinsengracht was in 1612. It is a part of the Grachtengordel in Amsterdam and thus since 2010 a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In the background you can see the Westertoren of the Westerkerk. On 8th October 1669 Rembrandt van Rijn was buried in this church.
Child welfare-Joost Swarte comics (from set of four) (issued 14-11-1984),
Summer stamps-ships (from set of three) (issued 11-04-1989)
and Australian bicentenary (issued 30-08-1988)
(in the Netherlands you can still use the old stamps in Dutch guilder and not only the new stamps in Euro)
Thank You so much for this great postcard Maick!
