Theme Thursday - Treasure

I had hoped to find something a bit mork sparkly, and a bit more inspiratinnal than this, but I'm pushed for time today so I'm afraid this will have to suffice for thie week's Theme Thursday. This is a real photographic, vintage postcard of the Treasurer's House in York, c.1949, and was published by Photochrom, number 71238.

A quick bit of research revelaed that this was the first property to be given to the National Trust, it has a 2,000 year history, has a sunken garden, and is abound with ghost stories. I think perhaps the rather sombre looking postcard may not do it justice.

Treasurer's House, York, c.1949

As usual, 100's more vintage postcards on my web site ... and finally I've started adding some of my 300+ that I acquired in September, so if you've not visited for a while you may find something new.

  1. Hi Dakotaboo,

    I think that the picture is a great treasure and needs no sparkly things to improve it.

    It looks like a fairly large house and I can see why it might have lots of ghost stories. Spooky Dude could live there. Then again this looks like a winter picture and I am sure that during the spring and summer it was really beautiful.

    Thanks again for sharing such a nice postcard and playing in this weeks Treasure Theme Thursday.

    God bless.
