Thanks for all the congrats, life as we know it will never be the same!! As both our children live 186 miles away in Preston we shall not see the nipper every day but whenever we do see him it will be all that more special.

Congratulations to you and yours ! What a whopper! (the baby I mean)

Sorry I have been a bit spasmodic in my appearances recently but a few issues have prevented it.

The interesting thing about this one is the fact that someone's gone to the trouble of running it through a typewriter for a 49 letter message, and had to think about the synchronisation of the address on the split pane format!

There's a few typos in the 'pony terk' reference and the mis-aligned Capital R would indicate that he didn't have any tippex to hand and running out of space for 'Gardens' in the address. That and along with the pretty formal semi colon and full stop abbreviation of North in the address suggest that it was sent by a clerk not used to typing on a paper size smaller than standard foolscap.

But the most considerate thing, is the apology for the un-thrilling content. This sender is the only one of the so far 1298 pictures featured to acknowledge somewhat dull content of early postcards;-)
