Wandsworth, South West London, Spencer Road 1906

Early postcard by Richard Charles Young - Young started his postcard business in Teddington in 1906 (though he had previously published a few postcards in Bexhill-On-Sea in 1905 where he had a bookshop before moving to Teddington in 1906). This postcard was posted in November 1906. Although not signed YC or RCY it is undoubtedly his, the lettering is unmistakeable on these very early cards. The scene in this typical Wandsworth street is remarkably unchanged. I don't think I've got the exact viewpoint right, but I'm posting this in a hurry tonight.
