Vintage Postcard Finds

Thursday, July 03, 2014

I popped to my local high street this week and found these in a lovely emporium near the station. Crammed to the rafters with all sorts of bits and pieces I often spend time wandering around gazing at all there is. This time I spent ages flicking through their vast array of old postcards.

They had some particularly lovely specimens, so nice that I couldn't leave them behind. They're all written and posted in the early 1900s.

Look at the handwriting. I wonder if Miss M Goldsmith was pleased to receive such a thing? Kezzie, do you get such postcards from loving pupils?

I've driven up and down Spring Road thousands of times, but next time I do I'll be sure to look for no.19.

This next one made me chuckle - what a strange baby with an adult face! But once again, it was the back that delighted me...

This is next one is my absolute favourite.

'Come and see me tomorrow don't forget. Yours Truly Polly' with no less than eight kisses. I wonder who Mr W Moss was to our dear, sweet Polly? Was this the start of an exciting young love affair? I do hope it was...

    1. I love it! I can't help but wonder about the writer and reader and their lives.

  2. I feel the same as Laura its so nice to read bits of people's lives. Its like with jewellery in charity shops I always wonder who bought that those pieces for someone and why... like there is always a story to things! x

    1. I like the idea that, when it comes to second hand jewellery, that you can give it a new story. Like it's getting another life of sorts.

  3. They are amazing! And look at the beautiful handwriting, if they were written now your just have abbreviations.

    So sweet to have a glimpse of history.

  4. I feel really bad about the large pile of postcards I chucked out from my Grandad's. I feared the entire famiky would lynch me if they knew I was hoarding them when we just had to clear! These are most intriguing. I get lovely pictures and notes from my kids (and some really heartfelt) but no postcards x

  5. Oh I LOVE them!! Particularly intrigued by Polly!

  6. These are great! It's so interesting to read things like this.
