Thank-You letter on a postcard to postmen
Deutsche Post AG received this self-designed postcard as a 'thank you' to its mail deliverers, who were particularly stressed by the increased volume of letters and parcels during the coronavirus pandemic. Because of the measures taken to combat the coronavirus, many households were increasingly having goods delivered to their homes. Since then, consignments have frequently been delivered contactlessly. The card can be seen as a gesture and sign of solidarity to the postman, similar to the evening applause for healthcare professionals. The postcard is marked with Cologne Cathedral in a snow globe.
