A Happy Christmas to You - Bideford

Description: Postcard created from a painting of Bideford by H.B. Wimbush. It pictures a river, a town and a bridge. Description on the back reads, "Bideford. Here from the steep green hill behind the town, Bideford is seen to best advantage, The whole width of the River Torridge, on whose western bank Bideford stands, is clearly seen, and the fourteenth century bridge across it, of 24 pointed arches and a total span of 741 feet, is manifest as a delightful promenade. The church tower visibly is old, but the rest of the building is modern." Correspondence reads, "Thank you for the letter. C.W. B." It is addressed to Miss Rosa Bassano, Paris, Texas. U.S. The postmark is from Old Hilldale, Staffordshire (England) on De 13, 06.
