A SET OF POSTCARDS FOR YOUR DELIGHT
HOME PAGE

The following series of short tales that came about from a set of postcards sent to me by Dave Hill for which I am grateful.

It is a joy to look at such illustrations and see how London once looked.   It is perhaps hard to appreciate that many of the sites and scenes that make up the London of today has not always looked as it now does.  Places change with time; buildings become used for other purposes or are replaced.

Who would have thought that the wonderful Kingsway Tunnel that once served as an important link for commuters, today serves mostly as a storage area.  Who knew that Eros had not always stood at the centre of Piccadilly Circus or that one or tow statues of Trafalgar Square have changed?  And who knew that Waterloo Bridge is also known as The Ladies’ Bridge!  And what of the name of Charlie Brown?  I only knew the name through the work of Charles M. Schultz or The Coasters!

Places and things come and places and things may go, but memories live on in our minds and in print.
