This Group celebtrates Boring, ordinary, dull, commercial Postcards that feature aspects of our everyday life – such as streets, roads, houses -- and are, in a strange way, interesting because they are so uninteresting. Join in and share your Postcards of our Boring world.

THINGS ARE VERY BAD IN PARIS, FRANCE, THESE DAYS....
1.La tour Eiffel de la rue St Eleuthère
"So I said to President Macron..."
"But did he listen to you?"
"No, he never listens to anyone these days."
2. Things are so bad here that we have to go busking on the streets and have had to get the dog to wear a dress and dance
PS The dog neither likes dressing up or dancing.
THREE MORE FROM MIKEL UNTZILLA
1. Iban de Estanes (177m. alt.) Piirineo Aragones, Spain
"Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans" (about Boring Postcards?). Or Pilgrims' Progress
3. Le Palais du Centre Nationale des Industries et Techniques
Featuring the 'Rond-Point (roundabout) de la Défense à Puteaux'
[Just in case you don't know immediately who the architects responsible for the Centre are they are Monsewers Camelot, De Mailly and Zehrfuss]
TWO BORING ONES FROM VAL -- Thank you Val!
1.Moon (by Chineasy)
This is really quite clever. There's a moon --obviously. But what is it seen through? A window? A chair? Nope -- it's the Chinese ideogram for 'moon' (yue). And it also means 'month'
Very unlovely word, but a good UK supplier of stamp and philately stuff
YET ANOTHER THREE BORING POSTCARDS FROM MIKEL UNTZILLA -- ONE OF OUR MOST LOYAL CONTRIBUTORS!
1. Passeig Jaume 1, Salou, Spain
2. Loro Parque, Porto de la Cruz, Teneride, Spain
People who are very drunk and hallucinating supposedly see pink elephants. But green ones? Three of them? In a row?
Remindq me of a Belgian beer called Delirium Tremens ....
Enough of that...back to Mikel's last Boring Postcard
3. Le Sacré-Coeur et la Place du Tertre, Paris, France
The Beskid Sądecki is a range located in the southern part of Poland and is the westernmost part of the Western Beskids. The region is very attractive in terms of tourism, mainly due to its beautiful landscapes (Poprad river gorge), numerous spas (mineral waters), rich cultural heritage of the region (e.g. Wooden Architecture Route), and folklore. The biggest tourist centres are the spa towns and villages located near the springs and mineral water intakes, such as Krynica-Zdrój, Muszyna, Piwniczna-Zdrój, Rytro, Żegiestów-Zdrój, as well as Szczawnica, located on the border of the Radziejowa Range and the Little Pieniny Mountains. Postcard form 1977 year.
TWO OLD SALONIkA STREET SCENES (AND A BIT OF HISTORY) FROM KATERINA -- THANKS AGAIN!
1.'Exohon Avenue (today's Vasilisis Olgas) in 1903".
Salonique = Salonica = Selonik = Thessaloniki. The street scene is during the Turkish Occupation (ie before 1912, and freedom from the Turks.)
2. Ethnikis Aminis Street and the Syntrivani in 1903
"Saloniue? For the city named after Alexander the Great --Thessaloniki Victory (nike) over Thessaly by their father Phillip, King of Macedons" explains Katerina. [And again a 1903 scene]
