"If you talk to God you're religious. If God talks to you, you're psychotic."

Milly

 

My wife found this lovely postcard for me at yesterday evenings Bury Postcard Club meeting, on the surface it’s a picture of a pretty young girl called Milly, probably a bridesmaid at a family or friend’s wedding. The back tells a different story, Milly and her whole family died of TB when she was only 17, the cost of the card just £1 but really a priceless piece of social history. As an aside to this the number of deaths due to TB rose last year in over a decade
