Mexican revolution

The card shows the same library in Mexico City as my previous card from Mexico City.  This one, though, has a stamp celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Mexican Revolution.  The entire year of 2010 was declared the Year of the Nation because it was also the 200th anniversary of Mexican Independence.  I imagine there was a stamp for that anniversary too but I haven't been able to find out.

This is a post for Sunday Stamps, now hosted by Violet Sky at "See it on a Postcard!"


  1. Quite an impressive library and never knew about stamps for just Sunday. Enjoyed the links very much.

  2. My world history background is lacking - I did not know it was the 200th anniversary of Mexican Independence.

  3. I love history, interesting stamp, thanks for sharing.

  4. It looks a fabulous library, a wonderful place if you were a researcher. Interesting the same date for independence and revolution, wonder if there is only one national holiday.

  5. A great stamp and a library I would like to visit.


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