The top end of High Street
This postcard dates from the early days of such cards, when only the address appeared on the back. A small space has been left underneath the image for a message to be written.
On the left we have the Police House – still there although no longer used by the local constabulary. We look up Market Lavington’s High Street in the direction of Easterton. The Congregational Chapel is more or less central.
The vehicles are, of course, horse drawn.
Over on the right hand side of the road some of the properties retained thatched roofs.
This, as we can see, is not the most sharply printed card but the view is not the most usual and it reminds us of the early days of postcards.
