I found this in an antique shop in Llandudno earlier in the year. It was posted from Lisbon in 1950, following a flight made in BOAC Argonaut "Ajax" (G-ALHD). The postcard looks to be one given out either on board the flight, or at the airport by a BOAC employee. It was interesting to read about an observation lounge in the tail - providing "glorious views all round for thousands of sq. miles at 18,000ft".
