This vintage real photo postcard features a British lightship named “Tongue”. The lightship was stationed in the Thames Estuary, 8 miles North of Margate. Lightships are ships that are employed as a substitute for a lighthouse. The need for lightships is that some waters are too deep or have other problems that interfere with lighthouse construction. This postcard was published by A.H. & S. in their “Paragon Series” (no. M.90). The publisher was located in Margate. This ship postcard is in excellent condition (see scans).

2020-04-12_001701 dog baby 1

2020-04-12_001842 dog baby 2This fun real photo postcard features a cute baby riding on a large dog. At first, I thought that this photograph was created via “trick photography” in the developing process. However, after looking further at the photo, I noticed that the baby’s parent was crouched behind the child in a hidden position. The parent is holding the child securely atop the dog. Note the parent’s hands under the baby’s arms. This photo was published by a studio in Margate, England. Margate is in Kent County in the United Kingdom. It is a coastal resort town. This vintage postcard is in very good condition (see scans).
