A little piece of history

I've received quite a few postcards of books recently and this looks like another.  But it's different, it's a piece of history.  It's the joint declaration on the future of Hong Kong, signed by Margaret Thatcher, then Prime Minister of the UK, and Zhao Ziyang, Prime Minister of China.  It was signed in Beijing in 1984 before the big hand over of Hong Kong to China in 1997.

It was sent to me from the USA but it was bought in Hong Kong.

This is a post for Postcard Friendship Friday hosted on Beth Niquette's blog, The Best Hearts are Crunchy.


  1. I like this way of putting history on postcards - they should do this in schools - a hands-on way of remembering important historical dates!

  2. I love postcards which tell history. This is no exception--I have a soft spot for Margaret Thatcher, too.

    Thank you for posting this!

    Have a great weekend and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!


Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
