This week we are making MAIL ART for the Digitalmania challenge.

Here in the Yorkshire area, it was the custom for all the woollen mills and factories to close down at the same time for a week during the summer. The thousands of workers took this opportunity to climb aboard the trains and take their annual holiday at the seaside.

I have many postcards from the 1950s, '60s and '70s with messages such as the one here.

Thank you for looking.

This is great! I love this. I used to live in the Brighton area, although well past this era.

Great postcard. It would have been a smashing day at the seaside today, sunny and hot! I was in Whitby a couple of weeks ago and enjoyed fish and chips.
