Early postcards provide us with an insight into old village life.

Although photography was developed from the 1850s onwards, one of our main source of early village Life scenes is unquestionably the picture postcards.

These were popular form of communication between 1894 and the 1950s.

Britain was slower than its continual neighbours to catch on to the picture postcard.

It was not till 1894 before the old post office gave the green light.

Surprisingly there are a lot of different postcard images of our beautiful village.

I will try to add a new Picture postcard page in the New Year.

The Village of Widdington, Essex

The annexed account entitled:

The Village of Widdington, Essex

Was written in 1939, as an appendix to a History of the Hollis, Ainslic, Bullock, Smith, Griffiths, Murkin, and Perry Familes, and it may be well to preface the account by recording briefly how the four last mentioned families came to be associated with, or interested in, Widdington.
