When I was a boy just after the war (WW2 that is !), reading the dirty postcards
with their none too subtle double-entendres was part of a day out at the
seaside. There don't seem to be so many of them about now, perhaps because
attitudes have changed and sex is no longer a taboo subject. There are many
thousands of comic cards from all over the world - just a few here, hope you
enjoy them - and please don't be offended, they are just meant to provide a
good laugh !!
This postcard by Bamforth was mailed
in 1908. It would have been considered
very risque at the time.    
Jokes about the "Lost Chord"
were thought to be extremely
funny when I was a child - I seem
to remember that Jimmy Durante
had a song about the man who
found it.   
No date for this card, but the "Mrs Slocombe"
pussy joke would have been considered
very near the mark !    
"Many English people still refuse to
believe in the total destruction of their
contemptible little Expeditionary Force. It
is realised more in Berlin that it would
have been policy to allow one man to
escape to carry the news". This postcard
of course dates from World War 1.
