Harwich Old Books, Essex, UK

Harwich Old Books, Essex, UK, originally uploaded by CarolinaRen.

This card and the two that follow come from my long-time penfriend across the pond, Kerstin. This advertising card comes from her favorite place to visit--an antiquarian bookshop. Reading the back of the card, you learn that, beyond stated operating hours, the shop is also open "extra days in summer and bank holiday afternoons, and at any time by chance or appointment." :)

Harwich, Kerstin says, in the county of Essex, can be accessed easily by regular summer ferry services, across the River Stour estuary. An old maritime town, Harwich is very popular on hot summer days, when you can sit on the pier, have a crab sandwich and a drink, and watch the world and boats go by ... which is precisely what Kerstin did ;)
