Postcards from the past. Nuneham Courtenay Cottage. Vintage Postcard.

I am currently sorting through my postcard collection and I thought it might be interesting to upload some of the cards the have correspondence on the back. I had thought about starting a fresh blog for them, but I have decided to just upload to my current blog every know and then.

The first card I will be uploading is one that features a waterside cottage in the village of Nuneham Courtenay, Oxfordshire. I assume the cottage to be alongside the banks of the River Thames which runs to the south of the village. 

Nuneham Courtenay Cottage, Vintage Postcard.


The card appears to have been posted in August 1925 and features a half penny King George V stamp. Sadly I am struggling to make out some of the writing on the card, but as far as I can tell it was posted to a E.V Smith, Reading. This is before postcodes became widespread, they only started being rolled out after 11 October 1959, so I have been unable to trace the postal address, I thought it was Harris or Horris Road but neither of these exist although there is a Norris Road in Reading.

Thanks for looking and please take a moment to share.
