Not as boring (look at those footsteps! The rich green forest! The crystal blue sea!) as these Dutch stamps which more or less look like this boring postcard...

THIS HAS TO BE ONE OF THE MOST BORING EVER POSTCARDS I HAVE COME ACROSS!

It's of a big sand dune -- la Dune du Pilat -- 9km/6miles from Arachon in the SW of France. It's 115meters high and the highest sand dune in Europe

Kalisz, postcard with view - "Osiedle 25- lecia PRL" (Estate of the 25th anniversary of the People's Republic of Poland) (such name was in use in Poland during the communist Russian regime). Postcard from late 70s of XX century.

POLITICS AS THEATER...OR THEATER AS POLITICS?

Two Boring Postcards of the Bundeshaustadt Bonn, Germany. The first shows the Federal Parliament building (before the Parliament moved to the Reichstag building in Berlin). The second Postcard is of a theater on the same street.

I would have thought that one theater would have been enough, and the best show (drama, comedy, tragedy) what-have- you would have been in the Parliament.

TWO SOMEWHAT BIZARRE BORING POSTCARDS

1. Rock with hole and LOTS of seagulls (the white flecks), Cote d'Amour, France

2. A French pine forest Boring Postcard

Apart from the beaten-up bit of tree dominating the foreground, there ain't much pine forest here, just a lot of scrubland and some sea

THREE MORE FROM MIKEL UNTZILLA: THANKS MIKEL!

1. Mexican Wolf

This looks like the Alsation dog that lives nearbye that is neither Mexican nor a wolf -- just bad-tempered

2. Lanzarote

It's supposed to be a Postcard of Lanzarote, but all I can see is a boat in the foreground, a rising or setting sun in the background...but where is the island of Lanzarote? In it's absence, this could be a Postcard of almost anywhere

3. Langeats, France.'Le Chateau' - Salle des Gardes'

Hèlas, there are no Gardes as they have all gone looking for Lanzarote

Thanks Raphael. Every Sunday I go to a flea market hoping to find some East European Boring Postcards like your ones from Koszalin and Lublin, but I  haven't found any so far. I'm going to Holland next month and know of a postcard collector/dealer there who may have some. Regards, Val

Koszalin - one of the biggest cities in the northern part of Poland, situated near the Baltic Sea coast. Photo shows the building of the Provincial Committee of the Polish United Workers' Party, postcard from 1964.
