Twickenham, York House, Rustic Bridge c1907

A suitably wintry postcard by Young & Co of Teddington. Unfortunately the rustic bridge is no longer there, but this is still a lovely part of Twickenham. In the distance is the famous White Swan pub. On the wall directly above the publisher's text 'Rustic' you can see some graffiti. Someone has written (probably in chalk) 'Alice Smith'. Perhaps it was the girl in the photograph? The diagonal line is a fault on the negative.

Close-ups of the postcard:


  1. That is a beautiful bridge. The lamp post also adds a nice touch, but it's still a beautiful setting today, even without those elements.

  2. Currently in York House Gardens there is a path that runs between the house and a bridge over a pond. I believe that this path once continued on and over the bridge in the photo.
