Sepia Saturday 183 - vintage postcards of caves

Looks as though it's going to be a warm day today, which will make a pleasant change, so I will be off out on my bike shortly, but still time to share some vintage postcards for this week's Sepia Saturday. I actually had quite a few cave postcards to choose from, so have taken one from each location.

  1. Aha, we're in the same location this week - Dovedale - and the Swanage postcard must be very close to where I based my SS165 post. Hope you enjoyed your bike ride.

  3. I don't think I have been to any of the caves you mention. Proves that there is still a lot of this country I still need to see.

  5. When I saw the first card, I thought for a moment I was looking at Natural Bridge in Virginia. But no. These are all interesting making me wish I could see them in person.

  7. I wonder where the name "Tilly Whim" came from and what it means.

  8. My photo of Buchan caves show a fairy grotto also. They do look similar.

  10. Breathtaking. Even more so, because it makes me say, "I wanna go there too" --- also by time travel, me thinks.
