A quick post as I’m fiddling with technical stuff behind the scenes (VPN and Remote Desktop anyone?) but this is the latest post in a serious of unusual postcards spotted on everyone’s favourite tat bazaar, eBay.
For sale by postcard dealer Antique Chapters, we have this intersting image of the Warreners Arms, purportedly from 1915. I find this interesting, as I’d love to know when this incarnation of the pub was built, replacing the squarer, less decorative one as featured in the book ‘Memories of Brownhills Past’ by Clarice Mayo and Geoff Harrington.
The scan is of very high quality and of particular interest are the original etched windows, which I don’t think survived.
If you fancy this, you can see the original sale here where it’s offered for £45. Form an orderly queue, folks.
While I’m on, the same seller also has the following classic card, which I think we’ve all seen before. Another version of it can be seen here and it really is a classic Brownhills image.
Unlike the Warreners one above, this card has been postally used, and has an interesting message on the rear.
This one too is for sale for £20 here.
