This old postcard boasted that it captured "Three Sights of Salop. The Wrekin, Cressage Bridge, Tommy Rogers." Tommy Rogers was a well known Ironbridge coracle man who died in 1924. The old wooden Cressage bridge was demolished in 1912 and replaced by this concrete structure built in 1913, and as there looks like a structure top left which may have been associated with the construction, the picture may date from 1913 or 1914. The postcard was addressed to Mr W Stone, Amberfield, Chart Sutton, Maidstone, Kent, and the message was – and this is how it was written, complete with dubious spelling – "Dear W., Thanks for PCard Glad to hear you were a i sorry to hear you are not in love with the place well if it is worse than this I pity you all the Bhoy's are now in Camp so it is not very Gay hear is it I supose we shall see you down hear for your holidays soon with love Rose.
