Tennyson Cottage, Mablethorpe, Lincolnshire

Tennyson Cottage, Mablethorpe, Lincolnshire

A printed postcard. The message on the postcard:

“Dear Nelli, Wishing you many happy returns of the day. Love from Ethel & Walter. Brinkley June 30th 1922.”

The card isn't stamped.

Apparently this is the cottage where Alfred Lord Tennyson stayed when he was a boy visiting Mablethorpe.
