Castles on Postcards

Postcard sent by Bryon (Canada). Craigdarroch Castle, in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, seems a wonderful place to visit. A bit of information on the back of the postcard:
Craigdarroch Castle was built ad home for Robert and Joan Dunsmuir, Scottish immigrants who made their fortune from Vancouver island coal. A National Historic Site, Craigdarroch features an extensive collection of stained and leaded glass windows, magnificent woodwork, Victorian furnishings and decorative arts.

Postcard send by Ulrike (Germany). According to the sender, the most impressing building of Duisburg. Well... a 16,68m sandcastle must be a thing!

Blatná is a castle in the Czech Republic, but this postcard was sent by Imma from Spain. Have you notice this is an altered one? She collaged the women to the picture. I think the result is stunning. I didn't notice at first sight! (Even if, yes: not so normal that a rag doll visit a castle in the company of an elegant woman!).

This is a post for Maria's link party Postcards for the Weekend. You can go there to see more postcards about this week topic's: Monuments.

  1. I'm always fascinated by gigantic sand creations. I can't imagine having all that patience to create something so spectacular only to know that it won't last very long.

  2. Hi Eva, All 3 cards are excellent and perfect for this week's theme on Postcards for the Weekend. How interesting to discover Craigdarroch Castle in nearby Victoria, BC. What a beautiful castle! And you are so right about the 3rd card ... fascinating! And I have to agree with The Cynical Sailor, that sand castle looks amazing, but all that work just to be washed away within hours? :-) Wishing you a happy week ahead! John

    1. Now you must go to visit that castle...

      Sometimes I also think it is a pity that these artistic creations must disappear. But, on the other hand, this drives us to make better ones, doesn't it?

  3. Although all of these postcards are about castles, I love it that they're all special in their own right. Thank you very much for sharing Eva! And I agree, that sand castle is a monumental thing!
