A quick post of a great local postcard spotted by reader Dean, and the latest post in a series of unusual postcards spotted on everyone’s favourite tat bazaar, eBay.
For sale by postcard dealer univeralpostcards, we have this interesting late 50s/early 1960s Bourne image of the High Street, looking southeast towards Shire Oak from just opposite Brewes Shop, from outside where Aldi would be now, Station Hotel on the right.
A scan of this was featured in the book ‘Memories of Brownhills Past’ by Clarice Mayo and Geoff Harrington – but this image is much clearer. That huge pram!
The scan is of very high quality.
Also included at the foot of the post is a lovely Norton Canes postcard, pointed out to me by a reader a few weeks ago (but I can’t now remember who, or indeed, find the auction) – it’s a remarkably high quality scan and worth clicking on just to see full size for the central image of Norton pool (Chacsewater) with the conduit slag heap in the background.
If you fancy this, you can see the original sale here where it’s offered at a starting price of £9.99. Form an orderly queue, folks.
