On The Road Home

One of my personal favourites from the MRC archives is this collection of postcards:

Depicting cats racing on ordinaries, these postcards are colourful and humorous.

They bring about the sense of fun that you see in so many of the images in the Cyclists’ Touring Club collection…

The last postcard shows the journey home, though it’s not quite as smooth as the cats might hope.  This one was sent from the North London Cycling Club, Christmas 1934 – it wishes its reader a Happy Christmas.

There we have another feature of our #hiddengems collection.

If you wish to view these postcards or the great many more that we host, please come in and visit. Reference code:  MSS. 328/C/5/5/2
