Postcard exhibit at Wanstead Park's Temple building provides insight into Edwardian times
There is just one month left to catch an exhibition of Edwardian postcards at Wanstead Park's historic Temple building.
The display explores the craze for postcards 100 years ago and what they can tell us about life in east London and the wider Epping Forest area back then.
The postcards, which date from around 1905 to the outbreak of the First World War in 1914, feature a host of popular local locations including Wanstead Park, Hollow Ponds, Connaught Water and High Beach.
Many of the examples also include touching messages and often intriguing insights into everyday life.
The exhibition launched in July and runs until Sunday September 29.
It is open from 12 noon to 5pm during weekends and is free to attend.
Call 020 7332 1911 for more information.
