July Alternative RR (1) - VI

More cards from de July Alternative RR. These are from Belarus, Canada and Brazil.
I still have some cards to send, i'll try to send the rest next week.

This is a card with the Orthodox Church in Baranovichi, a city in the Brest Province of western Belarus. The card was sent by Veronika "nickey".
The town's Orthodox cathedral was built in the neoclassical style in 1924-31; it was decorated with mosaics that had survived the demolition of the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, Warsaw, Poland.

Rose "phuleshouse" sent this card with the Cornell Mill in Stanbridge East, Canada.
"On January 11, 2010, a new stamp was issued by Canada Post as part of its “Flag over Historic Mills” series. The stamp, a permanent stamp with no fixed denomination, features a view of the historic Cornell Mill in Stanbridge East. Originally a grist mill, the Cornell Mill was built of brick and fieldstone by Zebulon Cornell in 1830 and is the oldest surviving mill in the Eastern Townships.
The Cornell Mill operated until 1963, but was acquired by the Missisquoi Historical Society the following year. The historical society wished to preserve the building, which was by then cracked and decaying, for posterity. The mill was soon transformed into the Missiquoi Museum, which today features exhibitions on the region’s Loyalist heritage and other aspects of regional history." - in:

This is the Carmo Basilica in Campinas, São Paulo state, Brazil and the card was sent by Sérgio "xiru".
