This vintage postcard from 1920 is labelled "Penlee and the cottages S. Devon". The back includes a written message to Mrs Pettit of Northampton.
Out of stock.
The front of this postcard depicts a photograph taken by W.J. Bassett-Lowke labelled "Penlee and the Cottages, S.Devon." Googling suggests this property no longer exists, and given it's location on the coast should not be confused with Penlee House in Cornwall. The handwritten message on the back does put the location as "Wyndcroft, Penlee, Dartmouth", but again no evidence of this comes up on search engines.
The back of the postcard includes a message address to Mrs Pettit of Boughton, Northampton, which reads:
"Dear M, Just a line to let you know we think of you. We are having a fine time. [Illegible] is a lot better, Sam (?) also. The topmost of these little cots [cottages] is Windcroft (sic) with glorious sea and country views much nicer than it looks. I do wonder if S and MC know when they go. Much love and [illgible] to you all."
There is a King George V one penny stamp on the back with a postmark dates "15 Ap 20" suggesting this card is from 1920.
