This is an old Francis Frith postcard featuring the 13th century church of Saint Dubricius in Porlock, Somerset. Not content with being eight hundred years old – and a Grade 1 listed building – the current building was built on the ruins of an even earlier church. England really does drip with molten history.
This is a lovely illustration by the artist J Hamilton Hay from the 1907 book Liverpool by Walter Dixon-Scott. It is entitled The Landing Stage, South End.
J C Tunny’s Studio – 13, Maitland Street, Edinburgh
This is a Carte de Visite from the studios of J G Tunny of Maitland Street, Edinburgh. There is little to identify the man – other than the rather satisfied smile on his face.
Scan from a collection of Punch Magazine for 1921 I have recently acquired via eBay.
