Thanks Mick, and welcome to the Group.

The first two postcards are suitably Boring. (The third is rather 'touristy'.)

If you don't want them, can I have them for my Exhibitions, please?

BORING POSTCARDS EXHIBITIONS



WHAT? Boring Postcards are exactly what they say they are, namely Boring Postcards showing Boring photographs of Boring places, presumably for Boring people to buy and send to their Boring friends. They include Boring images of motorways, roundabouts, roads, hotels, bus stations, factories, housing estates, airports, camping sites, swimming pools, convalescent homes and shopping centres. They are, in a strange way, interesting because they are so un-interesting



FORMAT: Original commercial postcards (ie not home made ones) only, and, hopefully, with the original address and message on the back). Only original postcards will be displayed.



WHERE? Two exhibitions are planned in the spring and summer of 2020 – one in Sigean in the South of France, the other in Wolvega in the North of Holland. Details of the exact sites will be posted later.



WHEN? In the spring and summer of 2020. The exact dates will be posted later.



DEADLINE FOR CONTRIBUTIONS: May 30, 2020



MAIL TO: Please send your Boring Postcards by mail to: Valentine Mark Herman, 1 rue de la Vieille Fontaine, F – 11130 SIGEAN, France



THE MORE BORING THE POSTCARDS ARE THE BETTER!

I just joined this group. I really like the idea and I just found some old postcards from my little town of Conneaut Lake, PA.

I think they are boring, let me know what you think.
