Top bloke Ian Broad has been in touch again this week, this time with a postcard mystery, as he knows we love those here on the blog!
Ian has currently been working on a series of ‘100 years apart’ old and new contrast images, the first three of which be seen in this post here and the second set can be seen here. I featured another, third set here last weekend and have yet more in the bag. These brilliant images have caused quite the stir – a wonderfully popular project from a great blog contributor.
But today, something a little different. Ian has the above postcard – which if I’m not mistaken is Moors Gorse pumping station, situated on Cannock Chase where Marquis Drive crosses the A460 Rugeley Road by the former level crossing at the foot of Kitbag Hill.
The postcard has not been postally used, and the reverse says:
A post Card Mystery!
Does anybody know anything about the folks in this undelivered post card? I’ve tried to find where 25 New Buildings is but can’t find any record. Post card isn’t dated. It’s from Pollie to Annie Cartwright.
Pollie has toothache so she didn’t go to Walsall and Annie has had a cold!
So, what do you guys think then? You know the drill… If you have anything to say, please do comment here, find me on social media or even mail me – BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com. Thanks.
Thanks to Ian for another wonderfully thought provoking post.
Ian has previously supplied lots of material for the blog. including an eternally popular 1982 Shire Oak School leaver group photo outside the Royal Oak pub in Shire Oak and lots about the history of Ian’s family shop Tom’s Cabin, a fixture of Brownhills for many years throughout the 1980s.
