Old Postcards

FROM the late nineteenth century sending postcards to family and friends became increasingly popular. This demand was met by by photographers who operated both
locally and nationally so that eventually a post card could be purchased of even the
smallest village. Wilding, who were Shrewsbury printers, produced postcards of
surrounding towns and villages.and many of those of Ruyton XI Towns, reproduced
below, were produced by this firm

Thanks are given to Mr. Derek Walley of Bayston Hill who provided postcards from his collection.
