Ancient Stones on Old Postcards

Ancient Stones on Old Postcards


Jerrry Bird



In the late-nineteenth century a newly mobile population began to visit hitherto remote and obscure sites of antiquarian interest. These treasured images of original souvenir cards from Jerry Bird’s unique collection date from that time. Many well, and lesser-known sites are included in this selection, arranged by the type of folklore with which they are most associated, and enhanced with a lively commentary, written with enthusiasm and scholarship. With the added bonus of map references and directions, this book is ideal for the modern-day antiquary or pilgrim who wishes to connect with England’s ancestral ancient stones.
