Phil,

I just came across this website and thought it worth bringing to your attention in case you haven't been there.
The pictures are a bit small but some are interesting despite that.

Sorry Phil, I'm training to be an idiot. I am currently top of the class.

Thanks mate, but once again it is one of the links I already have. At one time they used to post much larger sizes, but I suppose they cottoned on that people were taking copies. I don't think they realise people can enlarge them.

Phil, I wonder if they sell many, those prices are rather high.
I'm sure no one here would be enlarging anything but I will enjoy taking another look at the site with my browser set at 200%

I suppose the higher priced ones are the rarer ones. You would be surprised what people will pay for a card that they haven't got in their collection. Luckily with me that its the image that interests me not the card itself.

You have Volty to thank for the post card link, as for the white jacket it was an Arron cardigan that my wife had knitted for me, and on the photo before I cropped it she was standing next to me and my mate Alf. So if I had have turned any heads it wouldn't have done me any good because she would have knocked mine off my shoulders.

Phil, you most certainly have a most superb sense of humour, that did make me smile.!!
And
Volty, thanks for the Postcardworld site.
Lynn.
