Haute Ville, Quebec, Canada - Postcard Friendship Friday/Weekend Mailbox

Haute Ville, Uppertown, Quebec, Canada

"Upper Town, Quebec, is modern Quebec and includes an exclusive residential area, the Provincial Government Buildings, several large and important commercial establishments and the Provincial Museum. It also includes the Plains of Abraham which is today a beautifully developed park."

This is a very interesting postcard to me. It has perforations around 3 edges, and apparently folds open - so the writer can have an entire sheet for correspondence. If you click on the photos to enlarge, you will see the perforation holes.

I don't remember how these came to be in my collection, but I have a total of 3 - all from Canada.

  1. I have never seen a postcard like this one. Beautiful and fascinating! Love your information!

    Have a great weekend!

  2. Lovely view, and a clever design.

  3. Here is some information about Folkard letter cards:

  4. An interesting variation on a postcard, a little like the aerogrammes we used to have. (Maybe we still do!) I haven't seen anything like this before.

  5. Interesting to see the perforations - haven't ever seen anything like that, either.

  6. Of course I love this postcard--it is exquisite.

    Happy PFF!

    Don't forget to visit Gemma's Mailbox meme--I forgot to add in the link on PFF--but it's there now!

  7. I love the fold out, unusual, and useful, I always run out of room when writing on cards.
