Here’s another in the occasional series of interesting local postcards for sale on eBay that raise more questions than they answer – the above image is described as ‘SUPER-1916-EDWARDIAN-MEN-IN-CAPS-BROWNHILLS-RP-PHOTO-VINTAGE-POSTCARD’ – which seems at least to be accurate.
I’m intrigued as I’d love to know if the picture really is local, and if so where was it taken and who’s in it – and considering the no-nonsense appearance of the gentlemen in the image, that seems like a bit of a weedy dog. What’s that about, then?
Notice also the two ‘ghosts’ – someone is at the window behind, and to the right someone seems to be disappearing into the doorway.
I have a theory, but won’t share it yet. I want to see what you guys think…
If you like this, you can buy it from dseller ‘Interestingpostcards’ here.
Also, it’s not new images, but they are in good quality on a card whose design I’ve not seen before – the following card from seller ‘mica’ here. In particular, I’ve not seen the canal image in such clarity before.
