I was very excited to see this on your website to buy. my parents owned the village shop in the picture from the late 1950's (not sure what date) until 1965 when i was just under 2 years old. they sold your postcards in their shop and i still have some tucked away somewhere. they obviously were very involved in village life although both are now deceased. they used to talk very fondly about their time in wetheral and the village characters. thank you for making my christmas with being able to purchase this item.

…i commend you on research and the quality of this book as first class.
