Harrogate, England

This cover is postmarked with the Royal Mail's Harrogate postmark. I believe the image on the postmark is that of the Royal Pump Room in Harrogate. It's currently a museum but at one time would have pumped sulphur water for a health spa.

One of the stamps commemorates the "College of Arms Quincentenary" in 1984 (500 years). The Colleage of Arms is the official archive of Commonwealth family coats of arms. The other stamp is the (much) more recent Bobby Moore stamp from Royal Mail's Football Hero's stamp set issued on 9 May 2013. Bobby Moore is considered to be one of the greatest football players of all time.
