with love from Stratford-upon-Avon (1976)

With love from Stratford-Upon-Avon 1976

Dear Hilary, I hope you are well – I am. We have just got back from the Cotswolds having had a super time. We went to Stratford theatre and saw one of Shakespeare’s plays called ‘The Winter’s Tale’. It was good. Enjoy yourself love Ida x

Post marked ‘Brighton & Hove East Sussex 23 Aug 1976’ this card was obviously posted after Ida’s return from Stratford-upon-Avon, as indicated in the text, which again is a quick ‘keep in touch’ status update.

The other post mark reads ‘Enjoy a day at Brighton Races August 3, 4, 5, 18, 19, 24’

The card carries a 6½p stamp; the cost for a small post card in 1976


This is another ‘school summer holiday’ card from from Ida, updating me on her travels; although the notes are always brief, I received a great many of them over the years.  I have now emailed the blog link to Ida, so I am hoping she is ok with it and that we can meet up again at some point.
