Postcard Friendship Friday - Franco - British Exhibition 1908

I love to collect commemorative things. It really all started when we bought our late Victorian house and we wanted to decorate the house with some plates and alike from the Victorian age. We then spotted some plates and saucers that were made to commemorate the Jubilees of 1887 & 1897 for Queen Victoria and suddenly an obsession was born. Gradually we acquired small items that were produced to celebrate a particular event and this postcard is one of those items. 

Produced for the Franco - British Exhibition, held in London England in 1908.

Notice, how the sender has fixed the stamp to the front of the card, rather than the back.
