The next postcard in the album is one which has crept in from elsewhere (I suspect a rearrangement by a dealer at some time) and was sent in 1910 from Italy to H B Mudie who lived (with his parents) at 77 Kensington Gardens Square, London.  Harold Bolinghoke Mudie was aged 30 at the time of the postcard and was a share dealer and member of the London Stock Exchange.  I haven't been able to decipher the initials of the sender.

This old gentleman is a Sardinian of Sardinia where I find myself.  Enjoyed Rome with its monuments.  Am going on to Naples and Vesuvius then Venice and hope to be home by end of next month or sooner.  Very fine weather.

As you can see the reverse of the postcard has been used for scribbling practice at some time.


  1. What a beautiful and exotic card. I'm glad that the scribbling practice was limited to the reverse side.

  2. Did this man ever think that a century later the whole world will be looking at him with just a click of a mouse.

  3. Men wore their skirts much shorter back in the day. I'm glad modesty prevails now.
