Unique: c.1928 Postcard to master Sydney Shacklock, Brookfield, Kirby Road, Sutton-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire

“Dear Sydney, Can you taste yours yet. S’hope so eh? How are getting on with the Rainbous whats! Having a nice time here, but just beginning to rain. Elsie.”

Skegness postmark; penny red George V stamp: this style of stamp was in use from 1913 to the end of the reign, in 1936.

The humorous picture, with a little boy saying “I can taste those kisses yet!”, is what is being referred to by Elsie.
