Airmail postcards at Gamages, London Featured Print

Airmail postcards at Gamages, London

People at Gamages in Holborn, Central London, addressing postcards and posting them in the special London Aerial Postbox, in time for the first aerial mail service from Hendon to Windsor and back again. The service flew on 9 September 1911. King George V gave permission for the aeroplanes to land in the grounds of Windsor Castle. Gustav Hamel was the first pilot to deliver by airmail. During September 1911 the Grahame-White company operated an experimental air mail service for two weeks between Hendon and Windsor. As well as commemorating the coronation of King George V, and raising money for charity, the event publicised the possibilities of the aeroplane as a means of transport.

Saracens Head, Snow Hill Featured Print

Saracens Head, Snow Hill

The Saracens Head, Snow Hill. From a sketch taken during its demolition in 1863. It was a celebrated tavern and coaching establishment, which stood on the north side of Snow Hill, without Newgate. It was removed in constructing the Holborn Viaduct in 1863. On the new Snow Hill, but some distance from the old inn, another Saracens Head Hotel has been erected, but it is quite unlike its predecessor in appearance and character. Date: 1863
