I've been having another look through Miss Smith's Postcards and trying to read what's been written on the reverse.
These are some of the messages my grandmother Elsie Smith sent to her sister Edith.
Elsie was married to my grandfather Sidney Henry Buckle in 1908 but she died in 1952 so I don't have any memory of her.
I found a photo of her taken in 1949 and think I can see a family resemblance between her and me.
I know this is Elsie because the baby is my dad and there's a similar photo to this one with his name written on the back. This would have been about 1925.
I used to think the first photo below was Edith Smith but now I'm not so sure. I think it looks too much like Elsie in the close up above. I'm wondering now if the person on the right was Edith. They look like sisters but Edith was seven years older than Elsie: does she look that much older? There was another sister, Annie, who was only four years older than Elsie. Maybe it's her.
I wish they'd written the names on the back of every photograph. I suppose if they were in frames or albums they didn't think it necessary. I do!
I've been looking hard at this photo. I think it could be Elsie too and I know from the postcards she sent to Edith that she went on holiday to Blackpool. I like the design on the reverse of the photograph.
I've added some new postcards to Miss Smith's Page including views of Bridlington, Hull and Sheffield.
