This postcard was posted in July 1910 by someone staying in Buchan Hill Cottage hidden by the trees beyond the pub sign. They write “The country here is lovely and the weather is glorious. We have lovely views from every window and the garden is so large and full of roses. I have not been around all the garden yet. I have marked our house on the card by a cross and the building by the telegraph poles is the grocer, bakery, confectioner, post office, etc, etc, etc”. Note that a well-disguised cow stands on the common land looking rather lonely.

I think you mean July 1910!

Barry Ray replied "Quite correct, I have amended the 2010 to read 1910 as above. Unfortunately, there are no prizes for spotting errors!"
