NewsFlash - Identification longshot/Talking Points

  Brumas 16:39 19 Oct 2007

As you are probably aware my wife collects old picture postcards. Amongst her huge collection there are lots of unidentifiable ones and I took it upon myself to sort them out and, some day, eventually identify them, giving the ’old grey cells’ a work out in the process.
Working on the principle that ‘two heads are better then one’ I started my “Identification longshot/Talking Point” threads which has given me pleasure and, I hope many others?

Getting to the point – my wife takes Picture Postcard Monthly which she reads from cover to cover, I myself find it a little too specialised so I just dip into it now and then when there is something of interest to me.
They have a section on their inside back page which is pretty much the same as my thread in that they publish unidentified p.p.c’s and ask readers if they can identify them ( who mentioned plagiarism?)

To my great delight I recognised ‘The old Horse Wash – Victoria Pier, Hull’ as being the identity of one of them. I contacted the Editor and was told I was the first person to do so and, should I be correct, I would be rewarded with a small prize. I was so chuffed in winning that I chose the PPC biro to remind me that my powers of observation – now honed to razor sharp precision – are improving as the height of the pile of postcards is fluctuating!

Just thought I would share this with you folks but no, I shall not be giving prizes for any future identifications :o)

A thought - I only hope my memory lasts longer than the 'quality' pen!

I contacted J. Salmon Ltd on the 15th about item 34 (is it?) that is still unresolved. I haven't yet had a response but imagine any archive they have would be massive. Hopefully they will kindly shed some light on it eventually. If not, then at least I tried. TC.

Thank you for taking such trouble, I and the rest of the forum will be more then interested in any information you should receive.

That will not make much difference then, will it? They are all stinkers to me.
