The first card shows what a popular meeting place the Pump always was.

In the second card it looks like the horse standing immediately behind the pump could be pulling a bowser. This was filled with water and then distributed, for a small charge, to local households.

The third card is postmarked 1914 and was sent to Wandsworth Common.
