Hello friends!

This is a nice card I received from Emma via swap-bot. Emma tells me, that she works in Manchester and that the market seen on the card is always full. I can imagine that haha.

Manchester is a city in the metropolitan county of Greater Manchester it lies within the United Kingdom’s second most populous urban area. Manchester is in the south-central part of North West England, fringed by the Cheshire Plain to the south, the Pennines to the north and east and an arc of towns with which it forms a continuous conurbation.

Did you know?
The world’s first stored-program computer was built at the University of Manchester and ran its first program on 21st June 1948. The Manchester Small-Scale Experimental Machine also known as ‘The Baby’ was developed into the Manchester Mark 1 which was then turned into the Ferranti Mark 1, the world’s first commercially available general-purpose computer. The SSEM had a 32-bit word length and a memory of 32 words. (Source)

I send love!
