I know you don't have a picture of this shop, Graham, as I was the one who
gave you the Reece Winstone references on 31st. January 2008 and
subsequently pointed you in the direction of the Reece Winstone Books

In your post of Ist. May, you mentioned the cost of ordering a photograph
to which I replied that was the going rate for an illustration, which is
still in copyright. It's also the going rate for the more expensive
original Castle Street postcards.
Once I paid £50 for a special photo from an archive, which I needed. It all
depends how badly you need something.
While I was at the Cheltenham postcard fair, I saw a postcard costing £25,
which I needed, but felt was too steep a price. Of course, when I got home
I realized I needed it more than I thought I did so I should have struck
while the iron was hot. Now, I'll have to look for that postcard dealer now
and hope that he hasn't sold the card in the meantime.
If you go down the postcard route, there are postcard fairs in Cardiff now
and then and there's a postcard shop in South Wales called Cofion, which is
Josephine's Books, Ian's Pages, The Clutton 'Do' and
the Glamorganshire Canal.
