I love old postcards, for me they were a kind of social media of their day. I’ve collected a few hundred over the years. Each one a snippet of an individuals life. This isn’t one of them. As I walked through Scarborough one summers day I got to thinking of Alf and Gladys. A middle aged couple in 1950’s England taking a break by the sea from a hard life back in one of West Yorkshires industrial towns. This is their story.
‘Weather champion, took a stroll up to the castle today. Fish and chips down by the harbour tonight for tea. Taking the bus to Whitby tomorrow, see you Saturday. Love to all. Alf and Glad. x’
