Monuments for Sunday Stamps

Luckily for me, this great envelope from Fabienne arrived in time to give me something to show today.

A journey around Paris by metro and stamps showing the monumental Grand Arch of La Defense, as well as two other stunners. Including the Opera, which has impressive statues on either side. I love the added Hockney collage.


With a little help from another Paris landmark, the Pompidou center.


And postcards showing the beautiful opera building, and a view of Paris.

For more statues and monuments on stamps, head over to Sunday Stamps.

  1. European opera houses are grand monuments to music, dance and theatre.
    And I love the modern look of La Grande Arche!

  2. Those stamps with the monuments are wonderful. Also the Chagall's work, but that isn't new to me. A bit of Paris in your mailbox...

  4. I like the annotated Paris view, combine that with the metro map and away we go.

  5. When the Pompidou Centre was being constructed the foundry I managed lost out on the contract for the outside steel tubes.
    Love the opera stamp.

    1. La construction de Beaubourg a été très contesté pour son audace et sa modernité !
