These postcards date from 1967 – 1987. We’re firmly in the era of bright, saturated colours. Holiday destinations of choice are firnly located in the West Country.
This postcard from Mousehole is an interesting contrast to the more brooding, grainy image in part 2 – here. This card above was actually posted earlier in date, but it has a later feel to me.
This and the next postcard are the places I spent my holidays when I was growing up. It looked exactly like that.
My parents now live not far from Start Bay and below is a photo I took the last time I visited in May. It was taken from almost exactly the same position as the bottom left-hand image on the postcard above.
As it was a bit of an uninspiring, grey day, here’s the same image after a bit of 1980’s-style Photoshop jiggery pokery 🙂
