First Day Cover - Inauguration of Dacca Railway Station (1969)

As I made a mention in one of my earlier posts that I only collected stamps, while one my elder brothers collected the first day covers. However, the one above is the only first day cover that someone sent me and I kept it as my only FDC.

The stamp was issued on the inauguration of the new railway station of Dacca, east Pakistan (now Bangladesh). The date of issue was April 27, 1969, and today when I share this FDC, it has been 42 years since this stamp and FDC was issued. A small possession, that is more than four decades old.

PS: Please don't send any mail to me on the address written on the FDC as the house was sold out some three decades later.
