Postcard from Muriel

Tucked away in my Ebay box are a few old postcards sharing snippets of people’s lives.

This one is from Muriel.  Postmark:  Farnborough Hants 7:30pm 20 Oct 1965

Dear Ma

arrived about 8.30. Stan and (I can’t work out this name) were waiting for me.  Weather lovely – sunshine now a little fog this morning


Not exactly mind blowing in content but it has an innocent charm.

It would hardly be a text message these days, but Muriel has bought the card, written it, in pen, bought a stamp and posted it.  All to report to Ma the weather conditions and that she’s arrived safe and well!

I like that….
