042a&b -Birthday greetings from Gillingham Kent 1929

By 30th September 2016Mailart

This card is a birthday postcard sent back in 1929 and comes complete with a lovely one penny stamp and a message from Grandma and Grandpa.042-postcard-from-gillingham-kent-1929-back

There are no markings on it telling you exactly where the postcard was depicting, and I wonder what the place looks like now. In my experience, Gravesend looked nothing like this last time I was there.


I guess that this is what birthday cards would have looked like back before the big card shops got in on the act.
