#457 Postcard from Ottawa, Ontario
Monday 8 October 2012 was a public holiday in Canada since it was Thanksgiving. On that morning, Aiman and I went to Rockcliffe to enjoy the beautiful fall scenery. As we passed by the old Rockcliffe Airport, Aiman wanted to stop at Canada Aviation and Space Museum. At the museum, both of us took the biplane ride tour around Ottawa! The view of the city from the sky was fantastic as fall season was at its peak! Before going home, I brought some postcards and decided to send one home. Today the postcard arrived!
The front of the postcard shows the painting of Silver Dart by Robert W. Bradford, the first controlled powered flight in Canada.
At the back, I used a permanent stamp that depicts the monarch of Canada, Queen Elizabeth II. The cancel is from Ottawa Post Office, and the postmark date is 16 October 2012. Thank you Postmaster!
