In more ways than one! This postcard belonged to a friend of my family. She lived next door to us in a house that was practically new when she moved in, in 1911 or thereabouts.
This postcard is particularly special, as the shop called H.F. Blackwell was her father’s who died during the Great War. The town is not far from where we lived.
I was lucky enough to inherit a number of special things like this when she died.
