Views of the World, Fountain At Leiria, Portugal

Well, this is interesting.  I did the basic Google search trying to find something worth passing on about the city of Leiria.  Didn't find a lot.  Mostly that there's a castle on a hill, Portugal's only motion picture museum, and another museum dedicated to paper.  Leiria is home to Portugal's first paper mill.  Pretty dull stuff but then I started looking for images, and found this very postcard for sale....in Europe.  Then another, and another one after that all in Europe.  But the stamp block on the back mentions U.S. and Canadian postage rates.  So an American postcard of a European scene ends up in Europe.  The big question, were the cards in this series made for export?
