The Tourist’s Eleanor

The surviving Eleanor Crosses in Geddington and Hardingstone, Northamptonshire have been popular postcard destinations for many years. In my Eleanor collection I have many of these, dating back to the early 1900s, from about 1905 I think. You will also see the Waltham Cross in Hertfordshire.

Postcards of historic sites are always a reasonable way to collect views of your favourite building/site or person. They are usually available for about a pound each, sometimes less if they are a little dog-eared!

I also have a postcard of Eleanor’s tomb, or the electrotype version anyway, which I have posted here before. I’m always hoping for more exciting ones. We’ll see…

Geddington, Hardingstone and Waltham Cross early postcards, plus a photographic card of Charing Cross, showing the Victorian replica of the original.

  1. I’m not a jealous person, but maybe I’ll rethink this theory. These are so trilling. They make me tingle. Thanks for posting :!:
