Another car boot find, this postcard is unusual in that the message on the reverse is considerably more recent than the card itself, it reads: ‘12-11-95 Dearest Mother – I thought this picture of Waycotts Corner years before the fire might be a small reminder of the Victoria Street you once knew. How long ago? I have no idea as there is no date and no Peter Tully to ask…from the clothes and band uniforms it must be very long ago. I hope you like it much love David.’
Judging by the crown decorations above the street this might have been a Coronation party or Jubilee celebration.
I was unable to find Waycotts Corner and there are numerous Victoria Streets, perhaps you know where it is?
After a little more research I found Waycotts Corner, it’s in Paignton, Devon.
