This site is dedicated to my hobby: collecting written and stamped (from country of origin) postcards!
Postcard collecting is a very addictive hobby, but its a lot of fun, and you get in touch with lots of nice people worldwide...
... Great multiview showing parts of the site... including one of the "Falls of Clyde"... it is now beautifully restored as a living community, with visitors from all over the world....Thanks a lot Andrene!!【ツ】

New Lanark is a small 18thC cotton spinning mill village located on the banks of the Falls of Clyde surrounded by native woodlands, where the philanthropist and Utopian idealist Robert Owen moulded a model industrial community in the early 19thC. The imposing cotton mill buildings, the spacious and well-designed workers' housing, and the dignified educational institute and school still testify to Owen's humanism.
New Lanark became a World Heritage site in 2001 and is one of the six UNESCO World Heritage sites in Scotland.
