Cambride Colleges Postcard

This next post card, featuring the coats of arms of the Cambridge Colleges, is from my Great Grandfather Earnest Jones to his son my Great Uncle Thomas Jones (he of the previous postcard). It was sent on the 15 July 1923 from Cambridge. I have no idea what he was doing in Cambridge. It may well have been a headmasters conference as he would have been headmaster at East Hoathly Primary School at the time. Tom would have been studying London for his Chemistry degree.

This one is Valentine’s card, you can find information on them here http://archiveshub.ac.uk/features/valentines.html.

Dear Tom

Arrives safely at four o’clock nearly melted.Went to Kings College Chapel this morning. So merely getting to know folk about 60 from all parts of England. about 2 from each county. Don’t forget to let your mother know when you are going home.

With love
your loving
Father
