The next 11 postcards come from the collection of Mary Blathwayt. All of these postcards were sold by her grandfather, Albert Cole,  who was the postmaster at Horning from 1910 until 1945. You can see more of the postcards from this collection on Mary’s Flickr photo pages and also some wonderful sailing shots of early 20th century Horning Regattas in the 1900-1950 Gallery in the Broadland Memories Archive.
