Vintage postcard of Moot Hall, Aldeburgh, Suffolk, c,1925

After having a bit of a mad week at work, I am rather behind in my blog updates. Hopefully however it's not too late to which everybody a belated happy Postcard Friendship Friday, even though it's Sunday afternoon here in the UK. The in-laws are about to come round for a BBQ so I only have a few spare minutes where I've managed to sneak away to post this. This postcard is of the Moot Hall, in the small seaside town called Aldeurgh, which is on the Suffolk coast, not far from Southwold. The Hall was built in the first half of the 16th century, and the term 'Moot Hall' means a meeting or assembly building. The building is still standing today and is where the Town Council still meets. The postcard artist is Parsons Norman, who is yet another postcard artist where this is the only card I have, and it was posted in 1925.

  5. My favourite part of the country - used to live near Ipswich (Chelmondiston) and I love the coast up to Great Yarmouth. Have a look at my collection at www.oldstratforduponavon.com
