Old postcards

I found these in the local Oxfam charity shop yesterday. There's just something about old postcards that I find very appealing. The colours are incredible and the photos almost look like paintings.

This one's of Old MacDonald's Farm in Storyland Valley, Edmonton, Alberta. Storyland Valley, eh? I like it. I think that calls for some googling/wikipediaing.

I love the swimming trunks on the boy in the bottom one. I can't imagine anyone ever swimming in the Thames, but maybe you can...or at least maybe you could back in the olden days.
