Taunton postcards

Here are a few slightly unusual postcards, starting with one from 1906 advertising the Taunton Amateur Operatic Society production of "The Rose of Persia".

The postcards below from 1907 are Christmas cards, posted on the 23rd and 24th December.

The cards below from 1909 and 1919 are commercial, from W. & A. Chapman, North Street, Taunton.  Both are franked with ½d stamps but the lower one has "POST CARD" crossed out as it was sent at the lower Printed Matter rate which was still ½d, the Postcard rate having gone up to 1d in 1918.

And finally some views of Taunton, posted in the 1930s.
