with love from Cambridge (1982)

With love from UK

Do you know where this card comes from? I hope you are enjoying the summer in Norway, this could have been better, but of course I haven’t come to look at the weather. I am here to work! The hospital seems all right and I hope I will like it here but I think I will. You are still welcome to visit me here, and write me when you come back. Love Rikke

Of course we know where this card comes from! Interesting choice of image to send from historical Cambridge. There’s the inevitable weather mention, together with news of Rikke’s new job and life.

It’s postmarked ‘Cambridge 1 July 1982’ and also carries the ‘Be Properly Addressed POSTCODE IT’. The 19½p stamp features Admiral Blake and his ship ‘Triumph’ which is part of the Maritime Heritage series issued in June 1982

Another card from Danish Rikke who left Norway a few months before me to work in Cambridge, UK; at that time and place the Union Jack image would have appealed to me far more than a view of the historical buildings, so she made the right choice! I’m sorry to say that I did not visit her while she was in Cambridge as shortly after my return from Norway I went on to travel with the Canadian. Rikke and I recently exchanged long emails catching up on recent news 🙂
