New Hampshire, USA

Another old card... I received this one over three years ago from my postcard pal Laura (I only just realised we've known each other that long. I'm impressed!). New Hampshire is located just north of her state (Massachusetts).

This area is famous for the historical covered bridges. This one here is the covered bridge in Cornish. It is the second longest wooden covered bridge in the United States, and the longest two-span covered bridge in the world. The Cornish-Windsor Covered Bridge, which spans the Connecticut River, was built in 1866.

The stamp on the left is quite familiar.. the other two (which are upside down here, oops) are from a set of 4 stamps issued in 2007 with the theme 'pollination'.
