Shottery, Warwickshire
Shottery is now just about joined on to Stratford, although when I was a kid it was a separate village. It is
of course chiefly known for Anne Hathaway's cottage, but it is a pretty little place with some lovely old
cottages.

This postcard was mailed in 1969, although I suspect the view is much
earlier.

Old Postcard, Shottery
"Ann Hathaway's Cottage is situated at Shottery, about one mile west
of Stratford. Here in this picturesque half-timbered building, with a
thatched roof, was born Ann Hathaway, who in 1582 was married to
Shakespeare. They had three childre. Ann survived her husband
about seven years, and was buried beside him in Holy Trinity
Church."   
A nice old view of "A Quaint Corner in Shottery" - a real photo
postcard from the 1930s at a guess.
A postcard by "Jotter".
A postcard mailed in August 1943.
Shottery

Tapestry Tea Rooms, Shottery
Shottery Manor
"The Tapestry Tea and Guest House" - can anyone help with a date ?
Shottery Manor - a postcard from 1943.
No date for this postcard, but it is interesting that there is no indication
that it is Anne Hathaway's. Perhaps the tourist industry was not so
well developed at the time.  
Shottery
Anne Hathaway's Cottage - one of Valentine's very popular
"Moonlight" series.   
An excellent photographic postcard of the village.

Did You Know..........that Shakespeare married Anne Hathaway (1556-1623) in 1582 ? She is
assumed to have grown up in the Hathaway family home, now known as "Anne Hathaway's Cottage".
