Fylde Coast Musings vs Cyprus Life – in pictures

Originally from a small mill town in Heywood, Lancashire (United Kingdom) we moved overseas at the beginning of March 2004 and spent the next glorious 12 years in Limassol, Cyprus. Sadly, in 2016 we had to return permanently to UK due to family ill health. We now live on the Fylde coast where the river Wyre meets the Irish sea just across from Fleetwood. More places to discover and capture on camera!

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:

Fab aren’t they?

  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?
