Welcome to the first in our new monthly blog feature, Postcard posers.
Every month, we’ll share a postcard-style photo taken somewhere in the UK. It could be a particular property, a famous landmark, or just a view of the town centre. All you have to do is tell us where and when the photo was taken.
We’re only expecting you to name the town or city. Of course, if you know the particular landmark or street, so much the better! As for the year, we don’t expect you to get it exactly – let’s say within 20 years counts as a correct answer.
This is just a bit of fun at this stage, so I’m afraid there are no prizes. If all goes well, we may introduce some kind of incentive in the near future, so watch this space…
In the meantime, show off your knowledge of local history, and get guessing! Your first Postcard poser is below – just give your answers in the Comments.
Thank you all for taking part – I’m really pleased our first Postcard Poser proved so popular! The correct answer, as many of you saw, was Sheffield around 1900. Congratulations to Martin Tolley, who was first to spot the right location.
