were collected by Miss
Ruth Harker: there are over 250 of them, dating from the
early 1900s to 1973. The earliest cards are addressed to Heugh
Farm, Satronside, Gunnerside with later cards sent to Paynes
Farm, Nazeing, Waltham Cross, Essex; Oxford Villas, Wormley
and Wood Green Farm, Cheshunt, Herts.
The messages are mainly concerned with parcels sent and received,
weather conditions, visits and holidays although the correspondents
occasionally mention characters/events
sometimes connected with Swaledale. They are listed in chronological
order where this can be ascertained.
