Three 1980s postcards from Iraq: Greetings from Iraq. I received these when I published worldwide magazines. Not sure how many people would travel to Iraq nowadays as tourists. Unfortunately I don't know the names of the places pictured.

A postcard of Tregony in Cornwall, England from an original water-colour by David Skipp.
The back of the postcard reads:
"Tregony was once a busy port, with the right to send two M.P's to Westminster. But the tin mines and china clay pits were the cause of their own destruction as silt clogged the River Fal. Despite Acts of Parliament aimed at stopping mining, the waters receded leaving the highest navigable point over four miles away."
