Past post card

editorial image

A brightly coloured Matlock Bath is shown in this picture, used on a post card souvenir of the town.

The picturesque shops and greenery of the tourist hot spot have been captured in all their splendour.

The post card was sent by a lady called Alice to someone in Belgrave Street, Darlington.

It is dated May 1929 and a one penny stamp was used to send it, featuring a noble looking picture of King George V on it.

On the card is written: “Edna and I are here for ten days.

“Go home on the 15th.

“Uncle is in Matlock.

“Hope to see you when we get back.

“Love from Alice and Edna.”
