Flea Market Postcards - Camp des jeunes

This card shows the youth camping site at Lourdes and is postmarked June 1973. I've found some recent photos on Flickr but none that I can use without infringing copyright. The site is more wooded now and the style of tent has definitely changed - they no longer look as if it is a scout or army camp.

Looking at the picture the style of shorts has changed as well.

Camping is one of my favorite things to do. Never did so as a child, but once I moved away from home and began raising a family we actaully brought my Mother camping! Although she still would never dream of sleeping in a tent....best time ever really....she chose the camper trailer! This is a great photo posted here anyway...and yes flickr can be fun but....;)

You have nice postcards and great writing too.

I am a collector from Pakistan. I collect stamps, FDCs, postcards, phonecards, coins and bank notes.

At present I am working on a UNESCO Postcards Project to collect postcards of all UNESCO World Heritage Sites from around the globe. Can you help me in this regard?? Or anyone else????
