Round the Isle of Wight

by Richard Overy

This postcard was bought from a car boot on the rabbit run near Telford yesterday.

The handwritten message on the back reads:

Sep 16th/26, Round the Isle of Wight 

and the print reads:

Bailey Glen Fern Studios, Bournemouth

The photo itself contains most of this information,

the name of the boat -Monarch which is also shown on the life

ring as is Weymouth, the date 16.9.26.

Most of the passengers look serious, perhaps they were feeling a little sea sick.
