Good Evening All. Methinks tis time for another GENUINE UNIDENTIFIED POSTCARD. As usual the postcard reveals no clues as it is unposted and has just a bog-standard divided back, no publisher or anything else to go on. click here

The central 'road' could be an aqueduct/viaduct spanning a river. Might be in Wales?

Agree that the church in the foreground could be Methodist as it has yypical architecture for around 1900.

Is that a river in flood?

"attack of the yyps!"

I've just binned my wireless logitech keyboard for that reason, I spilt ginger beer on it over the weekend and all sorts of strange characters have been getting on screen!

If, it is a 'bird's eye' view of a newly built aqueduct over a river, as I suggested, then the barrenness of the land on the LHS, could be explained by works traffic in the building of the aqueduct.The populated area on the RHS would be left untouched by the years of construction.I still haven't got a Scooby of the location.

It's an unmetalled road. There are telegraph poles in it on the left side, it undulates in 3 places going up the hill, the houses are built right upto the edge of it and canals don't go up hills without a lock rise.

I will have a guess at Calstock Viaduct, Cornwall...constructed in the 1900's.

AitchBEE - Calstock Viaduct is a rail bridge and looks nothing like this. Calstock is also a small village.

AitchBEE - this is definitely a road. There is a reasonable size town as indicated by the 2 large churches on the skyline and the fairly large, probably Methodist, church in the foreground. Churches of that type typically sat around 200. Personally I think that this is northern England but may be wrong.
