Twin Towers

Postmarked Brooklyn NY, dated 18 June 1982.

174 New York City
Lower Manhattan as seen from the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center, showing Williamsburg, Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges crossing the borough of Brooklyn.

Stamped but no postmark. Dated 19 February 1982.

C196 New York City
Statue of Liberty and the Battery.

Two views that will never be the same again.


  1. Today's the anniversary..I agree..two views that will never be the same again.

  2. It's one of those occasions when you can remember exactly where you were when you found out.

  3. That day the world changed forever. But there will be something new there, again. And a new postcard to tell that life and good is not over yet...

  4. Very true Ludovico. Life must go on, and be seen to go on.

  5. I think the whole world changed on that day.

  6. Beautiful and interesting postcards! I feel like I'm participating in a virtual tour. It's great!

  7. ..................................................
    That was my minute of silence while it is today the anniversary of what truly was a tragic moment. Nevertheless, life moved on, as it goes on, and with these pictures you remind as that there are a lot of things still worth looking at. Nice postcard of what is once was

  8. I put up my own Twin Towers postcard on my site as well. It was from 1980, and yet my dad wrote the most fitting note on it. I had thought about telling my own 9/11 story since I was/am living in NYC at the time, but I thought I'd let the postcard stand alone, it was testament enough.

  9. Such a beautiful, beautiful postcard.

    Thank you for stopping by my blog :) I hope to see you again soon! I will be sure to visit yours. I'm enjoying it immensely :)
