Sunday Stamps

For today's free theme, I'm back in the DDR . . .  well actually back in Germany before it was divided into East and West, and I'm revisiting the Moritzburg Hunting Castle, near Dresden.  After posting a stamp featuring this Castle (in Oct 9 Sunday Stamps), I found that I have a postcard from 1937 with a lovely aerial view of the Castle . . .
Sent to England in May 1937, here's the stamp with a Dresden 'Millionen Blumen' (million flowers) cancellation.
Below is the 1960s DDR stamp I posted last month which featured the Castle.

  3. It's so interesting to see the real castle as well as the stamp. The towers look like pepper pots. :)

  4. Nice looking castle. Glad to have seen it (and everything else) survived the war.

  5. Thanks for the castle postcard; it looks like a film set. I have a number of stamps in that Deutches Reich series but not the 15(pfennig)

  6. Interesting to read it is on an artificial island, the postcard shows that to perfection. I love how the stamp accentuates the colour.
