Since my challenge theme is postcards from countries or autonomous regions, Y provided quite a challenge. That's because the only country that starts with Y is Yemen. There used to be Yugoslavia (until 1989), but I don't have a postcard from there.
I didn't want to go the easy route and settle on a city nor did I want to highlight Yemen because I don't have a card from there, so I came up with the house of York. Since Queen Elizabeth has the royal bloodline of York, here we are. I do have several postcards of her, but they are blank. That's why this post shows a postcard that has the Buckingham Palace on it (bottom photo), which is ... the home of said queen, plus Prince Andrew who is ... the Duke of York. I have no idea how all this royal stuff works, I simply looked it up online.
Buckingham Palace has
- 775 rooms
- 760 windows
- 40,000 light bulbs
- 77,000 square meters of floor space
