I have recently returned from my summer holidays in the UK visiting family and friends and as usual, I came home to Rome with a new clutch of British vintage postcards in my suitcase! I'll share my new finds over the coming months on this blog, but before the summer hols finally draw to a close for kids in Britain I wanted to kick off with this absolutely stunning seaside postcard celebrating that most English of seaside resorts Clacton-on-Sea.
|Red, yellow and blue dots|
There is no indication of the publisher other than the words “F. M. Series” on the reverse of the card and it was printed using a simple, yet effective palette of red, yellow, and blue dots and stippled areas that vary in weight. Presumably the location could be swapped for any seaside location – this chirpy chap, with his red bucket and collection of seashells, would clearly be happy on any beach!
