Here's a postcard written in Esperanto in 1930 (Showa 5), depicting the Chumon (middle gate) of the Todai-ji temple complex, one of the Historic Monuments of Ancient Nara, Japan.



And here's a considerably later postcard of the Golden Pavilion of Kinkaku-ji (Rokuon-ji), one of the Historic Monuments of Ancient Kyoto. I visited both of these places when I was in Japan three years ago.

The old town of Goslar, Germany, is an UNESCO World Heritage Site.
This card presents Hotel Kaiserworth, part of this ensemble.
Postcard Publisher: Carl Friedrich Fangmeier, late 60's.

Quite a notable thing - see the girl fixing her sock, caught on this postcard for the generations.

This postcard and the stamp on it depict the larger of the two Jelling stones. The runic inscription on this stone translates as "King Haraldr ordered this monument made in memory of Gormr, his father, and in memory of Thyrvé, his mother; that Haraldr who won for himself all of Denmark and Norway and made the Danes Christian." The runestones, burial mounds, and church at Jelling were inscribed as a UNESCO Heritage Site in 1994.

As someone who collects "Runes and Runestones" as one of his topics, I fell in love with it immediately.
