Getting my Christmas greetings in a bit early?

In these days of full colour printing, it is odd to think that people once sent black and white postcards with their seasonal greetings on, but it doesn’t make the sentiments any less strongly felt…….BUT….and there is a bit of ‘but’ here!

If you look closely at the postmark, this card wasn’t sent in December – I reckon it was May, and I would guess that the sender was actually staying in Corsham in Wiltshire by this time when best wishes were being sent to Birmingham!

I just love the message on the back of postcards!
