Hello Alan:What a very splendid and highly original presentation of a post. Hull does, from what you say, contain some really fine architecture as do so many of these northern towns.
Very gritty - almost verging on carborundum.
"Ingrained in the very structure of the old buildings..." Might the grain mentioned be hops? It's morning here. Cut me some slack.Great way to post. Very innovative, and suits you perfectly. I like it.

Liked the format by the way. People these days just aren't taught to do proper handwriting like that! ;)
You are so clever ... how did you do that? Wendy and I have been talking about starting a postcard club. We have sent a few back and forth. Kathy M.
Nice post! I like your various images, the iron and the grandeur and the hints of the past. The city has a bad press but it's full of history.

Your creativity knows no bounds and your handwriting has improved enormously!
Thanks for the trip to Hull! What a fun idea to send yourself a postcard:)
This is an old picture postcard of Halifax Town Hall from my collection. It is the detail that is fascinating: Salmon & Glucksters tob...
