France: Nice

On Monday I got three postcards from France.

One of them shows various views of Nice. Nice is a city on the Côte d'Azur. In the 18th century it became a popular winter residence for the British upper class and the picturesque surrounding also attracted many famous painters. Today is Nice the fifth-largest city in France. In July 2016 the World was shocked by a terrorist attack on Nice's Promenade des Anglais.


Stamps:
New Marianne 0,10€
100 years Hélice Eclair (issued 14-10-2016)
The Hélice Eclair was a type of propeller used by French aircrafts during World War I. It was designed by Marcel Dassault in 1915 and had its first flight in February 1916.


Thank You very much William!
