a little while ago I visited the local antique store and found these two old postcards from 1908, documenting the Great Christchurch Fire on High Street. both are written on in lovely old cursive and make me feel so nostalgic. though, as someone studying art and historical artefact conservation, I feel v. guilty hanging them w/ tape and no acid-free coverings!
