I used to pass through Dartford every day on my way to school, a long long time ago and always rather admired this bridge which, at the time this card came out was one of the longest cable stayed bridges in the world.
The postcard was released by Essex County council Tourism department. I never realised that Essex had any tourism, so perhaps I’m missing out

Always like reading your comments. County Council postcards are probably worth researching as a genre.
I’ve found that, throughout this adventure through my unsent postcard stash, that I’ve found so many topics that I want to investigate in more depth. Athena postcards, the postcards of John Hinde (which have been compiled into a book amusingly titled “Nothing to Write Home About“, County Council tourism postcards, the list gets longer every day.
I’ll be studying these a little as I go I guess, but the initial aim of this 365 project was to finally get around to sending out my hoarded stash of (mainly naff) postcards, so the last thing I want to do (this time around) is go and buy some more.
…but there’s always next time 🙂
