The hotels in Taipei used to sell little packets of postcards. I don't remember what they cost, but I'm sure it wasn't very much.
Sarj sent me these photos of one such assortment along with the envelope they came in. He purchased these at the First Hotel, the same place where he experienced the earthquake that he described here in May. He says that the center photo is the hotel, of course; the one in the lower right is the lobby and the other three are the different restaurants in the place.
By the way, the First Hotel is still there and you can read about it at this website. It's not exactly a luxury hotel by today's standards, but it doesn't sound too bad. Well...except for that water leaking through the ceiling thing that one reviewer talked about.
