“Wednesday. Dear both, hope you are keeping well. Am down here training for 3 weeks or so for the bank. Am enjoying myself – life hectic, and they are keeping me busy at work. Look forward to seeing you, Carol. xx”

“Dear Hilda & Bill. Here in London, had a good journey up and comfortable train arrived before time. Robert was wailing. We have had plenty of rain – and yesterday on our way back from Southend we ran into a terrific thunderstorm, the hail was at least two inches thick on the roads, made driving a little difficult.”

“Dear Mum. Hope you are well. Sorry you won’t be able to come up. Thank you for your card, went to Portabello Market, but not so much on as a Saturday. We went to a show but had to stand all the way through, we had been walking since 9.30am. Take care. Cheerio for now lots of love Valerie.  See you soon x x x x x “

  1. Interesting London collection of Hindes. I’ve never seen the Albert Memorial, and I especially like the posed people in that shot. However the most interesting to me is the Chief Yeoman Warder, as I don’t think any of my Hindes feature a person in the foreground as the main subject of the postcard with the background out-of-focus. I really like the look of that postcard!

      It is indeed unusual – the only other card that I can remember like it is a similar shot of a London policeman . . .
