January 1906 - Picture Postcards of Badsey

Badsey with Aldington & Wickhamford Parochial Magazine
Transcription of article


As most of our readers are probably by this time aware, the Vicar has begun the publication of a series of Picture Postcards. The first two views to make their appearance - one of Badsey Church and another of the Village, giving a good impression of what May, in his " History of Evesham," calls 'the airiness of its street' - have so far sold well. It is intended that the series shall include Aldington Village, Wickhamford Church, the Sandys monuments, and the Washington tombstone. The cards are being produced by Messrs. W. & H. Smith Ltd., of the Journal Works, Evesham, who are on the high-road to an international reputation for work of this description. The price of the cards is 1d. each or 7 for 6d., and they may be obtained at the Journal Office, Badsey Post Office, the Royal Oak Inn, and Mrs. Warner's, Belmont Terrace. Any profits accruing from this venture will be devoted to the churches of the respective parishes.
