Vintage postcards: Charles Dickens

I was very pleased to pick up these 3 wonderful postcards a few weeks ago. They are all from Raphael Tuck's In Dickens Land series, although each from a different series. What's also great about these postcards for me is that I've discovered a new postcard artist, P. Fletcher-Watson.

The Leather Bottle, Cobham, published by Raphael Tuck in the 'In Dickens Land' series II, number 1164, c.1909

Charles Dickens's House, Gadshill, published by Raphael Tuck in the 'In Dickens Land' series I, number 1163, c.1904

The White Hart, Hook, Surrey, published by Raphael Tuck in the 'In Dickens Land' series, number 1350, c.1903

As always 100's more vintage postcards on my web site

  3. I wonder how far the series reached. So many places consider themselves part of the Dickens' heritage.

  6. I'm not familiar with any of those places. I like the way "Greeting 1903" is on the side of the last one.

  8. They're beautiful, they're really beautiful :-)
    And again, I'd like to find some picture of those places today, so I can see how they look now, even if I don't live near them ^^
