The Postcard

I have only seen this one postcard from the publishers, R & H Somerville. The card has not been sent through the post.

It has a divided back and a stamp box message that reads "A half-penny stamp to be placed here", so the card must have been published between 1902 and 1918.

The View

This view appears to have been taken on a wet, rather misty day.  The buildings look very similar today, but the streets are now full of parked cars and traffic, and the small lamp posts have been replaced.
