Postcard book in shops today

A self-confessed hoarder has made a book out of her postcard collection.

Mary Casserley, 45, will sign copies of Postcards of Berkhamsted 1902-1945 in Berkhamsted School’s Castle Street library from 2pm to 7pm today.

Her book includes people’s messages to each other on the back of the postcards, giving ‘tidbits’ of detail on the period’s social history.

The £20 book can also be bought, from today, at Berkhamsted’s The Way Inn bookshop and Waterstones.
