Postcard 9: Notre Dame de Paris

Paris, Banks of the Seine (1991) , a World Heritage Site
"From the Louvre to the Eiffel Tower, from the Place de la Concorde to the Grand and Petit Palais, the evolution of Paris and its history can be seen from the River Seine. The Cathedral of Notre-Dame and the Sainte Chapelle are architectural masterpieces while Haussmann's wide squares and boulevards influenced late 19th- and 20th-century town planning the world over."

Notre Dame de Paris Western Facade

At first I'm not really sure if Notre Dame de Paris is on the Heritage Site list since I only saw the name Notre Dame de Reims. But I soon read that it is under Paris, Banks of the Seine! I never thought there are 2 Notre Dame!

I tried also to research on MONA; however, no other relevant information can be found on the net, other than some eBay products suggesting that MONA might be the publisher or editor of the postcard.

At the back of the card:
