Vintage postcard of Anstey's Cove, Torquay, Devon, c.1903

Today's vintage postcard is a beautiful example from 1903. It's a vignette style postcard of Anstey's Cove, Torquay, Devon.

The greeting on the front of the postcard reads "It is lovely here today and I hope the weather has at last become more settled". Good to see the brit's fascination with the weather existed even 100 years ago, and that given this postcard was sent in August it's interesting to see they had perhaps been having a disappointing summer until that point ... sound familiar?

The undivided back of the postcard is also a real bonus, showing a clear 1903 Paignton duplex B69 postmark. The card was sent from Paignton to Aberavon, South Wales on August 19th 1903.
