...an old postcard I found. Apart from the fact it features where I live I love the interactiveness of it. It must have appealed to the scrapper in me.
Behind the little flap are some pullout photos
There are some wonderful shots of some local bays what a shame they don't look like that now.
I did wonder how the postcard made it through the post in tact I'm not sure it would happen nowadays but sent it was by Doreen on 23 August 1951 to a Mrs Gody in Bath. There was no message to accompany the postcard only these strict instructions:
Only name and Address of Sender allowed
If any other writing, Letter Postage is required
It seems that it was a printed paper mailing novelty and the shape was passed by the G.P.O for printed paper rate. Who knew? And just in case you couldn't work it out there is a handy tip 'To Open Raise Flap'.
I certainly don't send postcards but I do send cards - Birthday, Anniversary, Christmas, Wedding, Get Well..........and cards just to say, Hello. In her latest Going Postal blog post Julie shares some general greetings cards featuring one of her favourite greeting stamps so I thought I'd share mine too.
A simple Hello.
If you would like some inspiration for making your own greetings cards don't forget that tomorrow I will be making the draw for the next recipient of the Cardmaker's Sketch Book. If you would like to be in with a chance please leave me a comment on this post. Thank you :-)
