In Sickness and in Health

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:

Dear Mother

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!

The other side of this postcard (0232) which shows the War Memorial at Clacton-On-Sea, can be seen here.
