Isn’t it strange how so many of the early 20th century postcard messages make reference to the health of the sender, receipient, or somebody else known to both:
E Lindsell in Clacton-On-Sea writes to his/her Mother in Braintree on 19 August 1926:
It is a little cooler this last day or too (sic) but it has been fine except for a little shower yesterday. I hope you are feeling better by now. We shall be home about teatime on Saturday.
Love from us all.
Perhaps Mother was just suffering a bit from the heat – a bit like me today!
