seaside post cards.& souvenirs
« on: January 11, 2022, 12:15:56 pm »
Its something of  past times when any one going either on holiday or wanted to send another person a post card of where they had been, and of course there were the saucy ones  that had a double meaning , do you remember them,  and  some postcards were sent from abroad all very picturesque,

other times it was buying say a memto, or a souvenir, something to  place
on the wall, or put on a window ledge , even on the  mantle piece,
iv seen some in the toilet nicely placed along side toilet rolls, obviously a very humorous one, and toilet rolls with Donald trumps face printed on every sheet of paper,

Q;  do you recall those times. and will you tell us of times either recent or past  when you received a card or souvenir,.

I remember all the wonderful Donald McGill-designed/illustrated postcards full of sexy girls and battleaxe wives/MILs.. At least the posties had a laugh..

Yes lots up there. Looks like somebody has bought the copyright on some and  is reprinting. Want £4 for this one for instance.

I remember my hand covering my mouth to hid the giggles when me and my sisters read them on Brighton seafront.  Especially when they mentioned ‘ My little Willie’.
