Cards such as the one below postmarked 1905 (sent from Camberley to Miss Earp of Bayham Gardens, Lamberhurst, Kent) are common enough but not written in shorthand!

DO WE REALLY NEED A "SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP" WITH THE UNITED STATES?

If Britain were not fooloishly throwing itself out of the European Union, we would not need to depend so much on the dying American empire with all its violence and greed - above all - its pig of a President.

BEST WISHES TO NEARLY EVERYBODY FOR A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR.

During the month of December this blog shall be paused while the year's posts are double checked and possibly re-edited. The next post will be on Monday 1st January 2018.

Rhyl Life has been chosen for preservation by National Library of Wales for researchers in the future. Been thinking of offering photos and/or info but haven't got round to it yet? Best do it soon.
Remember, your items don't have to be old to be interesting!
