North Somerset, England postcards – Weston super Mare

There was a nice article, “Weston-super-Mare through Postcards”, Part One by Colin Middle, published in the Weston-super-Mare & District [England] Family History Society’s journal, Buckets & Spades, issue 78, November, 2012.

The same article is now on-line for all to read on the Weston super-Mare & District Society’s website (and there’s a .pdf copy there too to save, if you like). Just follow the link above.

If any of your family ever lived or holidayed near Weston-super-Mare in Somerset, England, you might even recognize someone in the postcards shown. Or you may find you already have a Jacksons Faces seaside holiday card in your own collection.

I recall a happy Sunday at Weston-super-Mare myself not too many years back. I walked (and ate) on the shore, feeling a little homesick for my own Vancouver on the sea. But that soon passed, as by a happy chance there was a collectable show nearby on that day, and I found myself looking at (and yes, buying) postcards – some originally posted all the way from home in British Columbia, Canada.
