I have decided to collect postcards and mail art of CLOCKS during 2015. They can be clocks in any form - I bet there is a clock postcard in your collection of cards to send. So any will be gratefully received and will be posted on this blog. If you haven't corresponded with me before please feel free to e-mail scriptorsenex at gmail dot com to ask for my address. All cards and mail art received will generate a card from me to you so if we are not regular correspondents please put your address on the card. Thank You! John Edwards

No 4. - On Margaret Island
Thanks to Ania in Hungary I got this clock card. Margaret Island is a 2.5 km (1.6 mile) long island, 500 metres (550 yards) wide, in the middle of the Danube in central Budapest. This picture was taken some time ago.
Here is a close-up of the clock which was presumably to help folk know what time to expect the next train.
I missed the clock on this stamp until Anna pointed it out to me. I should be more careful! Thanks Anna.
The Votive Church and Cathedral of Our Lady of Hungary is a twin-spired church in Szeged. It lies on Dóm square beside the Dömötör tower. Construction began in 1913, but due to the outbreak of the First World War, it was not completed until 1930. The church serves as the cathedral of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Szeged–Csanád.
