Henley-in-Arden, Warwickshire

Henley-in-Arden is a small town in Warwickshire about 8 miles north of Stratford-upon-Avon. It used to be noted for the large number of pubs which lined its main road, but many of these have long since disappeared. Just after the war (World War 2 !), we used to cycle there from Wilmcote just to buy some of the famous Henley Ice-Cream. To see some more old postcards of the town, follow this link.

Skegness, Lincolnshire

Skegness is a seaside resort in Lincolnshire, on England's north-east coast. The Great Northern Railway built a line to Skegness in the late 19th century, and in 1908 produced the now famous "Jolly Fisherman" poster with the slogan "Skegness is so Bracing". It is still a popular resort today, and is very bracing when the wind blows off the north sea ! Nevertheless it has a fine, sandy beach and is a very pleasant spot. The postcard dates from about 1910.

Armstrong Whitworth "Ensign"


I've recently been sent lots of images of postcards of old aeroplanes, dating from the 1920s to the 1950s. There are some super postcards - you can see them at this link. This one is of an early airliner, an Armstrong Whitworth "Ensign" belonging to Imperial Airways and built at the Hamble facility. Imperial merged with British Airways Ltd in 1939 to form BOAC, which in turn merged with BEA in 1974 to form BA.

Paddington Station, London

This great old postcard was mailed in 1912 and shows the very busy platforms 1 and 2 at Paddington.

For those of you not familiar with the station, it was built in 1838, although much of today's buildings date from 1854, having been designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel. The station was the London terminus of the Great Western Railway. Trains still run from here to Bristol, Bath and the west of England.

Follow this link to see our old postcards of London's main rail termini.

Bruges, Belgium

An excellent view of Grand'Place in Bruges from around 1910. The clock tower fascinates me as it seems to be far to high for the building below, although it can no doubt be seen for many miles around.

If you would like to buy a reproduction of this postcard for 95p (plus postage) follow this link.
