Augustów, a city surrounded by nine lakes and the vast Augustów Primeval Forest. The water capital of north-eastern Poland, a perfect place for canoeing, sailing, boat, catamaran or gondola cruises. Postcard sent in 1986 year.

TWO MOR FROM KATERINA FROM HER TRIP WEST IN 1961 (Wow! 60 years ago!)

1. Eagle Gate Salt Lake City

" This was formerly the entrance to the private house of Brigham Young. The Bee-Hive house is located on the left in the foreground, and the State Capitol can be seen in the background."

Brigham didn't have a dog or cat, nor a hamster or a goldfish: he had an eagle.

2. Kennecott's Bingham Copper Mine, Bingham Canyon, Utah

"The Mine is located approx 28 miles SW of Salt Lake City. It is the largest surface copper mine in North America...Blasting occurs daily in the afternoons."

Katerina -- why were you collecting Boring Postcards like this 60 years ago? Did you know that their day would eventually come on IUOMA?

SUMMERY BORING POSTCARDS (it's cold here right now, so it's nice to see some sunshine)

1. Camping La Roque-d'- Antheron, Sylvacane-en-Provence, France

Not a Happy Camper in sight!

2. La Piscine de la Petite hollande, Montbéliard, France

This is not in Holland (grande or petite), and neither is there one swimming pool here -- there are two

3. Boring Holiday Postcard from Vigeois, France

Lots of pedalos (and the same photo is here top right and bottom left), but not many happy holidaymakers

4. Boulevard Clémenceau, Draguignan, France
