Before Email, Twitter and Instagram, people used to send postcards. I collect these vintage postcards, for their messages as much as their pictures.
Two Lively Resorts - vintage postcard from 1969 Click To Tweet
I found the ‘matter of fact’ words on this postcard sent from Scarborough in 1969 quite refreshing – the message reads:
Dear Mr and Mrs Hicks
I hope you both are well also haddie is as well as possible. Having a nice time, weather is not so good. See you when I return. God bless. All the best
