Most of the postcards are unused/unfranked, but one or two have interesting comments on the reverse and we have included these for interest.

Bridge Street, date unknown but looks to be late 1960’s.  Bridge Street was widened in 1959.

The Town Hall before the alterations were carried out with the removal of the flagpoles, pavement widening and the creation of the disability access ramps.  The card is unfranked but looks to be 1950’s.

The Fox and Crane in Weddington Roaad as it looked in 1938.  The card was printed certainly later than 1959 as that was when the first postcodes were introduced.

The card was posted in Stockingford on Wednesday February 19th 1908 to a Ms E Preece of Harbourne, Birmingham.  It is from a rather disgruntled young man named Harry who lives in Arbury Road, Stockingford and writes ” Dear Ellen, I hope you are quite well. I am sorry to tell you I shant (sic) be able to come Sunday. I asked him for the day off but he told me point blank I could not. Now I have been here two months he only wants to pay me four shillings a week for all the time I have been here.  He says I have not earned five but I would not except (sic) it so he has not payed (sic) me yet but I have got it in writing we have had such a row. The bakers leaving Monday and hes (sic) told me to leave and I shall too.  Yours forever    Harry  xxxxxxxxxx”
