Nicholas Takes a Bath
O.K., O.K., this isn't about Nicholas taking a bath -- Nicholas went to Bath for a year's study abroad, and he remembered the postcard rule and sent this beautiful card.
There isn't a regular postage stamp -- the card was put through a metering machine that stamped "Great Britain Postage Paid 0047" in red along with a crown and "Queen Mary University of London". It was sent from London on 30.09.05. (Hey, in a few hours it's going to be 01:02:03 04/05/06)
The caption on the back of the card reads "BATH -- The old Empire Hotel and Pulteney Bridge beside the River Avon."
Nicholas wrote a nice note in fairly legible handwriting for a physics major.
