Author: Roger A. Davie.
Information comes from various sources but a lot of it from reading through copies of Kelly's Directories of Norfolk covering the early 1900s - so the town descriptions you read here are renditions of information from that time. I quote or paraphrase the introductory information as relayed in the directory. I think this gives a sense of what it was like back then in terms of travel arrangements and so on. It's certainly eye opening to read about so many railway stations that have now been lost.
Details of who held the position of sub-postmaster or sub-postmistress in a certain year also come from Kelly's Directory. If I have been able to find them, there then follows details taken from the various censuses, usually from 1901 or 1911.
The postcards I have selected mostly date from the early 1900s and where possible I have tried to enhance them for display. Some were very age worn, but they still give a good impression of the scene. I hope you enjoy this little trip.
Over 150 individuals identified. Over 120 postcard images. Old railway connections identified. Extra details taken from census records.
