The absence of tarmac, signage, motor traffic and street lighting is noticeable, as is the ease with which children could amble and play outside in comparative safety. This image is one of a group of Bridgwater cards, that also includes a battalion of Great War soldiers marching over the river bridge at Eastover, a horse-drawn carnival float, and a local rugby team.

Other vendors have consigned cards of wider topographical, social history, railway, animal and Far Eastern interest and, as always, the sale will also feature cigarette cards, stamps, autographs, ephemera and books.
