Postcard Collection: Blackmore

The sending of postcards during the Edwardian era were the e-mail or twitter of their day. These are a huge source of interest to family and local historians. While sorting the effects of a relative, these were found which are mainly correspondence from her spinster's father and her mother while they were 'courting', to use that phrase. He lived in Mountnessing. She was a nurse in Wales.

This is a Fred Spalding postcard from the turn of the twentieth century of the Priory Church of St Laurence, Blackmore.
