"Abbey Mill, Abingdon"
On reverse is a picture of an unnamed mill in decline.
Abingdon, Abbey Mill
This image is undated; however it cannot be later than 1905 as this copy of the postcard bears a postmark of that date.
Abingdon, Old Mill
This copy of the postcard bears a George V stamp; the image therefore presumably dates from his reign (1910-1936) or earlier.
Abbey Mill, Abingdon-on-Thames
This copy of the postcard bears a 1/2d stamp. The postage rate for postcards rose to 1d in 1918, so the image presumably does not date from later than that year.
"A dip into the millstream past"
Article in the 'Buckinghamshire Advertiser & County Gazette' celebrating how many watermills there used to be in the county and the diverse used the survivors have been put to now.
