Cyprus Life – in pictures vs Fylde Coast Musings

Our new life in Cyprus began in early March 2004. Originally from a small mill town in Heywood, Lancashire (United Kingdom) we moved overseas spending a glorious 12 years in Limassol. Feel free to read my posts and view my many #photosofCyprus. However in 2016 we had to return permanently to UK due to family ill health. We're now living on the Fylde coast where the river Wyre meets the Irish sea in the north west of England. More places for us to discover as this part of the UK is not so familiar to us either.

Old picture postcards – Pompeii


I just came across a twitter post (as you do) of some images of Mt Vesuvius, Naples, Italy taken from a plane window.

The posting jogged my memory of some old black & white picture postcards I have from c1900’s. So, that was it – it set me off foraging among my many computer photographs and here they are:

Old postcards of Pompeii, Naples - Italy

Fab aren’t they?

I'm "Shell" or Michele - formerly a UK Expat living in Cyprus since March 2004. Sadly, we had to return to UK in April 2016 due to family illness. We now live "over Wyre" where the "River meets the Sea" at Knott End on Sea, Fylde coast, Lancashire. If you like my photos, you can see more of them on Flickr (Thulborn-Chapman Photography): and don't forget to check me out on Twitter too - you can find me: @CyprusPictures aka Fylde Coast Musings Enjoy!

  1. Would you be interested in buying more Pompei postcards?

    • Hi Ashley
      Thanks for your message. Unfortunately, I’m not looking for any more postcards from Pompeii as I’m trying to get rid of stuff at the moment rather than take on more!
      One word springs to mind – “eBay” may be a good place to start?
