Karen Averby & Alex Mayhew – A Noisy Noise Annoys an Oyster
Joining Tom Jackson to discuss the postcards from their pasts are historians Karen Averby (Seaside Hotels, Beach Huts) and, from the London School of Economics, Dr Alex Mayhew. We meet the Brummies of North Devon, Pete Seeger and Joan Baez at the Albert Hall, Mr George next door, and look for a better picture of ruins. Taking a close look at the postcards of the First World War and seaside Grand Hotels, our guests share cards from their collections. Wish you were here?
