This is the last postcard, received in 2010, and the first one from Poland. It shows Polish town Lochow. It is a small town, I could not find a lot about it in Wikipedia, just this.

A black-and-white postcard from Sarah from the USA. Beginning of the 20th century, Detroit, Ragtime and the Jazz Age.
Leroy Smith and his Orchestra were an African-American band that obviously modeled itself after the Paul Whiteman Orchestra and his symphonic Jazz.
This studio portrait of the Leroy Smith Orchestra dates from a session in 1914. Pictured from left to right are (first row) Harold Henson, Harry Brooks, and Leroy Smith; (second row) Stanley Peters, Ed Beeler, Fred Peters, and Emerson "Geechie" Harper.
And stamps - white bears and Bart Simpson :)

In one day I received two postcards from Taiwan. The first one - official Postcrossing card. It seems to be made from the photo of a person who sent it to me.
