Well given the title of this post, I could be talking about many different things, perhaps also including myself. However today's blog update is dedicated to what I refer to as my 'tatty pile'. This is a pile of vintage postcards which are typically not good enough quality to make it on to my web pages, but are worth keeping hold of nevertheless.
The first postcard is a street scene in Skegness. What I love about this postcard is the detail of the shops ... and the fact that it's car-free.
Lumley Road, Skegness, c.1912
This next postcard is of Manchester Road in Burnley. What's slightly odd about this postcard is that the dimensions and perspective seem a bit out of sync, but that adds to the overall charm.

And finally for this post, here's a postcard of Port Sunlight. By the sound of the name you might think it's somewhere in the Caribbean, but in fact it's a historic village in the Wirral. The village was the dream child of William Hesketh Lever who recognised the importance of a happy and health workforce for the success of his soap business.

As usual 100's more vintage postcards on my web site, including a new batch uploaded this week.
