Treasure Chest Thursday: Postcard Book Page 12 Seaside cards

So here we have the next page from the postcard book. (For previous posts click on the postcard tag).

At the top of the page we have a view of the promenade in Blackpool with the Blackpool Tower in the distance. The postcard was sent in 1907 and on the back there is a bit of a nag from Cousin Dorothy as it would appear that Nurse Hogg isn't writing back!

Below that we continue the seaside theme but move from the north east of England to the south coast with a postcard of Marine Parade in Eastbourne. This card was posted in 1905 and is another thank you card from an appreciative patient who hasn't forgotten his "attentive night nurse".

The final postcard on the page is completely different and show the town hall in Blackburn, Lancashire. This one was posted in 1905 and someone (possibly Francis) is arranging to meet Nurse Hogg on the train and tells her to not buy a return ticket.

Next post is away from the seaside but starts on the Isle of Wight.
