Hatfield Town Centre

Clearly if you’re going to take a photo of the town centre, the best time to do it is when there is no-one around, thereby adding to the sense of desolation.

 

Postcards from across the web

We were delighted to be showcased by an external article which lists 19 dull postcards from across the UK. Of those 19, 5 were provided by ourselves and linked back so a huge thanks to the author for including some of our offerings.

Anyway, here is that link

Some great options in there – our particular favourite is Redditch Town Centre with Traffic Interchange – sincerely jealous of whoever owns this one!

 

 

 

Russian Coastline

Have no idea where exactly this is – other than the fact that it’s in Russia – any theories would be welcomed.

Saxon Motor Inn Northampton

Nice…

Lyttleton Road Tunnel New Zealand

New Zealand has to be one of the most beautiful countries on Earth but when I visited in 1997 there was a surprisingly high number of Boring Postcards to be found.

University of Birmingham

Quality boring postcard – must be 1960′s or early 1970′s looking at the cars

The RTL Building Luxembourg

Another card that surprised the locals by the very fact that someone had bothered to produce it in the first place

St Mary Way, Baldock

 

Thought I had lost this but thankfully turned up after a house move

East Wittering – Shore Road

I’ve been to East Wittering and it’s a very pleasant place. Somehow I don’t think this really does it justice.

The Coming of the Docklands Light Railway

Apologies again for using these as an easy target. Railways and trains do feature greatly in my collection but this is one of my best. This depicts the construction of trackbed and station foundations in Devons Road on 03rd July 1985.

I can honestly see that this is a fascinating photo and an interesting historical document but as a postcard it’s pretty dull. What do you think?
