Postcard to a friend

As a collector of postcards I’m loath to actually use them but rather keep them safe in albums, however there are always exceptions,

this postcard by John Pulham – Fairies at Abbots Bridge, Bury St Edmunds reminds me of a postcard fair last year when I purchased several cards by John Pulham,

regrettably due to the current situation this annual fair held each May has been cancelled but the memories of several purchases are still strong and as such the card is worth sharing.

Here’s Looking At You, Kid

 

We look good, don’t we? And we always will.

Because we’ll always have Paris.

Sounds much better than quoting Redruth,  but that said 😉
