Happy New Year 1908

Thank you to Heather for sending this most excellent postcard for my ever-growing global postcard collection. All of which can be seen on the Paw Print Map.

Closer inspection shows that this postcard was franked on 24th December 1907, at Stratford sorting office, London.

Here’s a photo of the street it was delivered to, taken in 1905. It probably looked very similar when the card was received:

We think this is the oldest card in Geography Cat’s collection. Thank you very much and sending lots of purrs to Heather, Mark & Puss for sending it in so everyone here can appreciate it.
