Kippax Kippax

by Richard Overy

Postcard bought at a Car Boot Sale nr Worfield, I loved this image immediately.

The bleached out area to the right makes it look quite mysterious and the poem on the reverse is beautiful.

Kippax, Kippax, the home of my youth, why sigh for other worlds when there’s such a place as Kippax.

Hope you are all well.  Divine

It is addressed to Mrs Ralcliffe, New Street, Kippax, Nr Leeds.

The postcard is dated 8.30pm June 16 1905 (Halifax).
