I have no idea what witty and obscene comments this card could provoke from some of the Thanet bloggers, and I'm not sure why simply bending should be punished by unceremoniously un-donkeying in this fashion, but that's how it was in the old days, apparently.
This delightful card was posted from Ramsgate to Luton in August 1909, and the correspondent tells of how lovely it was arriving by water - presumably train to London, then steamboat down to the Kent resorts.
And the look on the donkey's face suggests he (or she) had done this before to unsuspecting bendy riders...
Then again, judging by the right foot in the left stirrup, was the rider facing the wrong way?
Enough blogging, off to the first day in my new job. Eek.
