Saint Louis

This amazing card was sent a while back by juliee, from USA. The colours are incredible: all those shades of purple on the sky and the lightning... just fantastic.

Saint Louis, or the Gateway city, is the largest city in the U.S. state of Missouri. It was named after King Louis IX of France and its most recognizable symbol is the Gateway Arch, which can be seen in the postcard’s picture. The Arch is made of stainless steel and stands 192m tall, being the tallest monument in the country. It is a part of the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial, which was established to commemorate three historical moments: the Louisiana Purchase; the first civil government west of the Mississippi River and the debate over slavery began by the Dred Scott Case.

It’s a quite stunning card.
