Holywell Postcard


This weekend gone was a public holiday weekend in the UK and R and I went to Winchester where there is always a collectables fair on the Bank Holiday Monday. It wasn't the most productive we've ever attended, although R came away with one or two pots. What I did find was this postcard of Holywell, postmarked on the verso 1911, showing the Shrine as it was then with the wrought-iron framed changing rooms on either side.

The photos from my most recent visit show how it looks now and I can't help thinking that perhaps the changing rooms with their little canopies actually make the pool slightly less exposed.
