Maps: Alaska and Russia

Today, on the anniversary of Alaskan statehood, I will share with you my first state map card from that lovely state:

USA-AKmap

This map was sent to me by Patsy through the Postcrossing forum. Patsy lives in Juneau, the capital, which is near the border with Canada. There are no roads into or out of Juneau, one must take a boat or plane to get to the town from outside.

Alaska became a U.S. state in 1959. Originally, the United States bought the land from Russia in the 19th century. And today I also have a map of Russia to share!

This card was sent by Audrey_Zoe in Russia. It is another fine addition to my growing country map collection.

And the card came with new stamps:

That’s all for today!
