  1. Oh my goodness look at that sky! I usually like the yester year photo more, but not today!

  2. The postcard photographers did a great job of capturing not just the scenes in their neighbourhoods, but also the 'atmosphere' (for wont of a better word) of the times. It's hard to express but these old views depict more than just the visual.

  3. There's a Union Jack amongst the clutter in the Post Office doorway. Could it be for the June 1911 coronation of George V ?
