|A 1926 "Multiview" postcard.
|The Old Advertisements which appear on some of the Stratford
pages are taken from "E Fox's Penny Guide to Stratford-on-Avon".
The copy we have is very flimsy and we can't date it accurately.
However, it refers to the headmaster of KES as being the Rev EJW
Houghton, who we have found was head from 1895 to 1902, so
obviously the guide appeared somewhere between those dates.
Do you shop at Morrison’s Supermarket by Stratford station?
Some of our postcards were reproduced on the walls of the
building and also used to make "picture" windows in the
restaurant. Are they still there ?
|We were delighted to have been able to assist the English
National Opera by providing an image of one of our postcards
for inclusion in the programme for their Spring 2006 production
of Vaughan Williams' comic opera "Sir John in Love". The
composer spent several weeks around the Old Theatre in the
autumn of 1912 and the spring of 1913, working as musical
director of “The Merry Wives of Windsor”under Frank
Benson's direction, and fell in love with the play. He wrote the
opera in 1920.
The ENO has an excellent website - like Stratford, it's well
worth a visit.
