Postcard from China no. 5
Today I received this nice postcard with an aerial view of the city of Guangzhou (Kanton or Kuang-čou in Czech), the third largest city in China, the capital of Guangdong Province, located on the Pearl River.
The back side of the card has a printed stamp with the same view as on the front, and a large 300 fen stamp issued on 17 November 1994 in a souvenir sheet on the occasion of the 4th Congress of All-China Philatelic Federation held in Beijing on the same day. The stamp bears the marking 1994-19 (1-1).
Thank you, Jimmy!
