Seaside Postcard 103: gone fishin'

Ramsgate seaside postcard Yet another card with fish on it, and also with bears. Not quite sure why, but bears seem quite a regular theme on cards.

This one was sent by Elsie in August 1913 to Dad in Upper Holloway, London. "I am fine and this is how I am situated. My face will soon be as red as my hat, but it is sore. I am going to Margarty tomorrow". Let's all call Margate Margarty, it sounds much friendlier!

We seem to have missed the snow at this end of the week, and with councils running out of salt and grit, it's just as well. So that's just the icy roads to worry about now then...

You have a neat collection of cards! I wonderr too why bears would be such a constant theme for Ramsgate. I'll have to stay tuned to find out:)

Whether bear or bare, it's the seaside effect bringing out the beast in people. Or their essential cuddliness. Or something...
