Grasmere, Cumbria c1920

Grasmere, Cumbria c1920. Grasmere is a particularly pretty village in the heart of England's Lake District. Formerly in Westmorland, it is now part of Cumbria. As you can see from the postcard it has changed little in the last ninety years. The Lamb Inn at the Red Lion on the right is a good place to stop for a pint of Hawkshead Lakeland Gold after a hard day's walking (though there are a couple of other excellent pubs in Grasmere too). The postcard is credited but I cannot make out the publisher's name. Click the postcard to enlarge.
