West End, Winteringham, looking east

West End about 1910, looking eastwards.  Have you spotted the two young boys posing for the camera in the grass verge, and the tradesman in the distance?

West End, looking towards Gate End, during the winter, showing the Bay Horse, the old Post Office on the right with its old Georgian windows, and the top of Ferry Lane, with Silver Street in the distance.  There are four boys posing for this postcard, two of whom are shown.

West End Boys!  Winteringham



From the postcard it appears that all the buildings are leaning quite badly, but if it is turned through 3 anti-clockwise, we can see that they are all vertical! (See pic below).

Postcard Post Office and Children - enhanced 800w

The postmark on the back of this postcard is October 14th 1907 (you can see the indentations made by the stamp have marked the front of the card top left!).  Some of the small boys outside the Post Office are carrying satchels or cases.  Note how many of the houses have no chimney pots, though the scene would be easily recognised today.

A larger format of this photo, where you can spot more details (and print off a copy for yourself!) may be found on the Hi-Res site, here.
