“Dear Edith, Beatie & Lydia. Weather really wonderful and having a lovely time. We go to Boscombe most days as beach is best we have a chalet this week on beach but don’t know if it’s a good idea as kids want to play in it. I’ve had shocking cold but better now. Sea is warm even George has been in. Love Cynthia, George and children.”

  1. You have a wonderful collection of Hinde postcards here. It’s amazing how many of yours I’ve never seen, and I have 175+ Hindes (mostly mid-70s and earlier). Nice to know I’m not the only one who is addicted to Hinde postcards!
