Here’s another recent arrival from my postcard penpal’s travels in Italy:
Based on the only caption – on the front – “308-56 (Tu?) Oderro Museo Opitergino”, I tried to figure out where this postcard was from. After quite a long time of searching online, I couldn’t find anything about the town or museum. Luckily, my penpal recalled the town. It’s from Oderzo, Italy and it’s of their museum Museo Archeologico Eno Bellis.
The museum has a collection of Roman antiquities (as you can tell from the photograph), but it’s not the most engaging image of the museum or town, as the back relates:
“In this town I could only find one (1!) single postcard. And of course it had to be old, ugly and uninspiring. Well at least it’s got a cool trimmed border. I hope you like it Glen. Ciao!”
It’s true, I do love postcards with different types of edges. I believe this type is called deckled – and is rather rare nowadays on postcards (but popular with fancy-type greeting cards).
