Postcards from the past

This afternoon I went to a talk held by Tom Jackson, the guy behind the Postcards from the past twitter account, podcast and book (which I have got). The twitter account presents old postcards along with a sentence or two of the message written on the card.

The messages, out of any context, are often funny, surreal, poignant or all of these at the same time. There are some fascinating aspects of social history revealed though these messages often you'd love to know more about the people involved especially in cases like the message below. Quite how did Mum get stuck in the toilet and what was so great about it?!
