A stroke of luck !

I have just recently received two separate lots of cards that I won on an online auction. They were both from the same seller and as I was sorting through them I discovered two cards of the same family but each of these cards was in a different lot. Now, if I hadn`t have won both lots these two cards would have been separated for ever. This would have been a tragedy as they show a families children growing up.
So, any postcard dealers reading this please take note...try and sort through your lots and try and keep any related cards together. It is important as I think we all have a responsibility to the people and families depicted on these cards.

Read about these children on my Flickr site.

A bit of a mystery !

I have noticed that one of my cards has attracted a lot of interest over the last few days and I am trying to work out why !
It is a nice card but I can`t work out why it has had over 300 views in such a short space of time.

The photo was taken on Bank Holiday 1914 so if this was August Bank Holiday it may be linked to the outbreak of World War One as Britain declared war on Germany on 4th August 1914 and as we have just had Rememberance Sunday it could possibly explain the interest shown. Other than that I am mystified !

Past the 10,000

Well, today the views on my Photostream at Flickr have past the 10,000 mark which is pleasing to me as it makes all the scanning and uploading worthwhile. I am pleased that people like to look at these pictures from the past and gives me encouragement to continue with this project.
