A note from Stalbridge

Date:

This month Barry Cuff has chosen a couple of postcards of Stalbridge – and as it was so popular last month, he’s showing us the backs again too.

This postcard was sent to Mr M Brice from Albert Road, Upper Parkstone in Aug 1909. It was published by J. Fezzard of The Ring in Stalbridge:
‘Dear M. Many thanks for your kind postcard. Longing to see you tomorrow, you had better leave Branksome at 5.52 arriving here at 7-6 then you won’t have to change. So I will meet you at 6 minutes past seven, don’t forget. Love to dear Martha & Sister. Yours Bertie – Ada is here today’

This was sent to Miss Warren at White Cross, Banwell in Somerset – which now appears to be Whitecrosss Lane. The card was posted on 25th July 1913 by the photographer, who we can apparently spot in the card! The 25th was a Friday, so this was sent just six days after the Sunday parade:
‘Dear Siss, so sorry I have not written as I promised but have had such a busy photography week, on Parade last Sunday and had a big order in whch made us a lot of work. Hope Mary & yourself are keeping well. Did I tell you Aunt & Uncle are settled down at Wuncanton, they spent last Sunday with us. You can see Aunt & me in the left-hand corner. Love from us both ’
