Sorry for the “mark”, but the usual slobs keep posting these postcards without acknowledging the source.

Vintage postcards and letters with old stamps are popular items sold at auctions here in Norway.

I'm glad there are some things that never change.

If the cars weren't parked there the differences would be subtle. Great!

Incredible VP.. I can't quite make out the date on the postcard, but the building around the monument haven't changed at all have they. Absolutely love to see comparisons like these.

I love your series with "old" and "new", and in this case also the stamps.
