Do you have a Valentine's postcard of unknown date? Try my card dating programme to solve your mystery!

As well as being a great source of old photographs, postcards can also provide an useful insight into the opinions of visitors to our city. A few candid words will quickly betray their thoughts, giving us the objective view of a neutral observer. It is also interesting to study the handwriting, the sentiments and the humour used by folk in decades gone by.

Postcard text: Yesterday we went to Coventry Cathedral - it is really beautiful, and the stained glass is glorious. The postcards do not do it justice. Have you been?

Certainly, this postcard does little to demonstrate the glorious colours that adorn so many areas of the cathedral.
