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

Woolwell - Glasgow was once a small village! How do you build a road over a 'swollen' river?

There are faint rail tracks on the 'road'. Why no traffic? on this 'road'.

Tow-paths and railway viaducts don't mix - QB.

Is that a telegraph pole - or are you just happy to see me! - QB.

I could be wrong about Calstock, but that road is not a road.

AitchBEE - As an ex photo interpretor who has looked at hundreds of photos from above and with this sort of aspect I can assure you that it is highly likely that it is a road. There are no faint rail tracks. There could be a pavement each side.

You are wrong about Calstock. I know it well.

...the 'face' has returned.It's looking to the right, near the bottom on the LHS of 'the road'.The picture has 'aged', since yesterday. Did Dorian Gray live here?

...the picture has become clearer again, near the bottom,to the left of the 'road', below the big circular mound feature, appears to be about ten vertical lines.Could they be the masts of sailing ships?

Brumas, why does the image oscillate between clear and hazy?

The vertical lines could be a gasometer.

My version of the image doesn't change.

...the vertical lines have disappeared...I suspect smoke and mirrors are afoot!

AitchBEE it's time you went to Specsavers or took more water with it.

I think it is Ibstock Brickworks as per john bunyan said on page 3 or a place very similar.

I don't think that there is enough evidence for Ibstock. The lack of chimney stacks in the card is a concern.

Back to the Churches as clues then.
