Oh what delights have been dropping through my letterbox since I started the Gentle Twitter Project and this postcard from the delightful Betsy Brock of Cedarville Ohio (and the wonderful My Five Men Blog) is up there amongst the very best. Betsy has not only managed to find me a vintage postcard, but one with a British connection. It is a postcard which started its life in London in the early twentieth century and came full circle and recrossed the Atlantic 90 years later. In keeping with the wonderful synchronicity that seems to permeate blogging, I have stayed at the Imperial and therefore the choice of card is extra special. However, the hotel looks very different these days than it did in the postcard image above. During the 1960s, it was extensively "redeveloped" and now presents a functional concrete facade to Russel Square. If the glory of the original Victorian hotel has faded, the joy of connecting with friends throughout the world - whether by postcards or blogs - has not. Thank you Betsy.
