Posted on August 14th in 1904 these are two of a series of three postcards sent to Mr M Brown in Leyton London. The sender (Will) used the three cards to send his message. Number one is missing. He was staying at Small Gain Bungalow. Talks about the fresh air and rest. ‘Having a great time although only a short distance from London. I like the life immensely.’
