On Our Travels with Darcy's Postcard Challenge - England
My page has the iconic telephone box as a background and stamps from my collection depicting some of England's beautiful Churches. I added the England flag, though I did use the Union Jack on my postcard. My pocket is a photo of my home town, Whitehaven in Cumbria. It is a view over the harbour. It is quite an historic site as it was once the 5th largest port in England and it was here that John Paul Jones attacked in 1778 during the war of Independence, some say to invade England and some say in order to destroy shipping and so hinder the British war effort. The cannon used to defend the port remains in the museum to this day, though when I was a child it stood outside and was a favourite place for children to sit! Me included!
