Photos and Postcards: Now and Then Part Two
This is the second post as a follow up to the first Photos and Postcards: Now and Then. I just keep running into more examples in my photo and postcard collection.
This one it will take 3 to illustrate as I obviously wasn’t matching up angles. These are of St. Nicholas Church in Henley in Arden, in Warwickshire. The day of our visit was quite memorable as inside the church was a young couple, who had been married there the day before. They had come back to experience it in quiet of reflection—as it happened as they said, “in a whirlwind.” Please click on images for full image.
HENLEY IN ARDEN, WARWICKSHIRE
This is from Totnes, Devon and is the old Guildhall there. We had a lovely visit in 2017.
A very special Place the Beauchamp Chapel at the Collegiate College of St Mary’s in Warwick, Warwickshire, England. Final Resting place of my 17th great-grandfather Richard BEAUCHAMP Sir , Worcester “13 Earl of Warwick,” “Knight of The Garter,” and “Captain of Calais.”
This next one is a very different vantage point but is clearly recognizable. Dartmouth Castle and St Petrox Church in Devon. This protected port was quite strategic in many battles.
Different viewpoint but discernible.
These two are quite close some 70 years apart.
WIDECOMBE CHURCH on DARTMOOR
ST. GERVAIS les BAINS, FRANCE
I stayed at this hotel last October and later purchased this old postcard posted in 1926. The apartment is on the next to the top floor as pictured on the right in the photograph with a Stone balustrade of a balcony on front side and iron railing on the side to the left in photo.
OLD REHOBOTH, MA now RUMFORD, RI
Eventually I hope to write more about this but the photo was my attempt to find Robert WHEATON’s home lot and an old postcard along Ten Mile River. The home lot would have been occupied about 1645 and the back border would have been Ten Mile River, now in Rumford, Rhode Island.
Who know there may be a third part, some day. Hopefully these inspire you to do a few of your own.
