Yverdon Souvenir Postcard - PFF

I found this postcard, along with several others of the same area and time frame, in a bin at the Goodwill Outlet Store nearly 10 years ago. I couldn't believe someone would give away these treasures!!!

I wish I knew the story behind this card ... how it came to be at a thrift store in Oregon over a hundred years after it was printed ... a world away ...

When I researched "Yverdon - Place de l'Hotel de ville", I found the following picture ...

It was posted by Marc on his blog "Allo, t'es ou?". I love how the present day building contrasts with the 1900 version on the postcard!

To see postcards from around the world, visit "The Best Hearts Are Crunchy" - and join us for Postcard Friendship Friday!


  1. It is interesting to see then and now pictures. It would be fun to follow the path of this card all the way to Oregon.What stories it could tell! Happy PFF!

  2. actually, it all looks pretty well preserved! great to see that some things survive...

  3. It must have had some adventures along the way! It's a shame we will never know.

  4. Oh, my word! Sissy! What an incredible find. I can't believe someone threw it away either. Amazing. Wonderful for PFF--Thank you for your research, and for sharing this truly fabulous find.
