Postcard Perfect 005: CN Tower in Toronto

Postcards collecting is been my hobby for few years now and I find it so much fun to see new places, read something new and learn some great stuff around the world, not to mention gain some new friends who's into the same hobby! For me making one postcard is such a happy thing, its like sharing a part of my world to the lucky receiver and receiving it is always great as I love to read more interesting messages from the sender.

Anyway, here's a lovely card by none other than, the owner of the meme's Postcard Perfect...Mommy Willa send me a card showing one of the declared modern Seven Wonders of the World by American Society of Civil Engineers, it also belongs to the World Federation of Great Towers, where it holds second-place ranking.


The CN Tower is a communications and observation tower in Downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Standing 553.33 metres (1,815.4 ft) tall, it was completed in 1976, becoming the world's tallest free-standing structure and world's tallest tower. It held both records for 34 years until the completion of the Burj Khalifa and Canton Tower. It remains the tallest free-standing structure in the Western Hemisphere, a signature icon of Toronto's skyline, and a symbol of Canada, attracting more than two million international visitors annually. Its name "CN" originally referred to Canadian National, the railway company that built the tower. Following the railway's decision to divest non-core freight railway assets, prior to the company's privatization in 1995, it transferred the tower to the Canada Lands Company, a federal Crown corporation responsible for real estate development. Since the name CN Tower became common in daily usage, the abbreviation was eventually expanded to Canadian National Tower or Canada's National Tower. However, neither of these names are commonly used. (Source: Wikipedia)

And the card comes with a stamp of a polar bear cub...very lovely and cuddly! *smile*
