"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.
"Abbey Mill, Abingdon"
On reverse is a picture of an unnamed mill in decline.
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.
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.
