click here A bustling market scene with quite a distinctive small market ‘office’ building towards the right hand edge of the stalls. The back offers no clues as it was taken abroad and posted in the Netherlands! click here
I have found two references to the Milton Sellwell Series postcards one here click here and one here click here but can't locate series no. 222.....yet. Both these references are in England by the way.
Brumas. Not many takers tonight so far.. I've just got in after doing a bit of taxi'ing relatives etc. The only thing that strikes me is the colours of the picture look as if they have been added later. They are a bit wishy washy too. I wondered if the postmark was part of the word Stavanger, but I think that is in Norway.
On the back of the card there seems to be what appears to be the price which has been rubbed out. It looks remarkably like a Euro sign with a small capital K after it. That might be a figure 2 though. So maybe it cost two Euro's to buy. Stavanger was European city of culture recently I wonder if you bought it there.
Anyway I knew you would be disappointed if I didn't add my useless twopennorth as usual.
There must be many old markets that look like this scene. However I wonder if it could be somewhere like Kings Lynn. In the far left hand corner there is a market cross or monument and behind that another distinctive buildng both with chequered stonework similar to that of buildings in Kings Lynn. Just a thought Regards Noels
That rather imposing red-brick building, four along from the left, is quite distinctive and looks like the Town Hall. I think I agree with Noels on this, so if only we can identify the East Anglian town we have cracked it!
