Torquay Harbour, The Slipway, V8041. Published by D. Constance Limited, Sussex. Photo by John T. Pullen.
The postcard reads, “A small break from work in the West Country”. I can’t make out the signature.
I hadn’t noticed at the time of cutting and sewing, but this postcard (posted on 4th June, 1968) was posted the day after the postcard I used for the first square of this patchwork. This one was posted from Paignton, the previous from Caernafon, 48 years ago, a day apart.
I also didn’t notice that they were posted to the same address; Ward 5, The Manor Hospital, Derby. This one to Mrs Smith (of London Road), the previous to Mr P J Wilkes.
Both were in the same ward, and must’ve received their cards around the same time. I wonder if they had a conversation about the postcards.
I am thinking that these cards did not go home with Mrs Smith and Mr Wilkes, for whatever reason.
