The Churches of Britain and Ireland
Christ Church. This is an old postcard from Steve Bulman's Collection,
and had been in the "Unknown" section for a long time. It caused much
discussion, and was finally solved by Phil Draper. It was posted to an address on Anglesey, stamped (though
not franked) in the reign of Edward VII (1901-1910). Simon Davies had suggested
St. Paul, on Vicarage Gate, Kensington, London, which was damaged during
the war, and demolished, but I'd been unable to find any corroborative photos. Brian Curtis had been looking at Old Maps, and deduced that the only way to get a view similar to the
postcard would be by looking SSE along Palace Gardens Terrace. Using Google Earth to get a modern view along that road showed that the houses (which look
Victorian), didn't have gardens - which the view in the postcard shows. In addition, Brian had found an old illustration
here - Plate "19c"-
it seemed more ornate than the church in the postcard - examine the spire, and note also the small turret to the left, not apparent in the
Janet Gimber had also been digging, and found a view of the church looking along
Palace Gardens Terrace - proof positive that the postcard is not of St. Paul.
