A Fiacre

on July 8, 2014

 

Scan 1 - Version 3This lovely card comes from Monika (great name…) in Austria and shows one of their famed carriages, or fiacres in front of the Hofburg. Vienna’s palace where, once upon a time, emperors and empresses lived – one of the most famous being Sissi in the 1800s. Now, Monika tells me, it is used as a library, museums and presidential offices. Awesome card!
