Happy New Year


A Happy New Year to everyone. I hope that everything you wish for in the new year comes to you. I chose this postcard not only because it is charming, but because It happens to have a coded message on the back. I’m pretty sure that it was written about a hundred years ago by the same person as this card here.

Here’s the message :
7 1 9 g 5 2 9 3 t 2
H 5 2 t

Wow, that's really exciting! Some kind of secret message between lovers... I would love to break it!

Willow; Happy New Year to you too. Don't worry I've got between 5,000 and 10,000 new old postcards, should keep me going here for at least 10 years!

Willow; Rob started to buy up lots in order to find the cards he wanted. You can get around 800 into a shoe box.

Hi Anji, this is terrible - I was wondering whether I should try and break this code! Me, who can't even remember the combination lock on my bike.
Intriguing though...
Oh, and Happy (belated) New Year

Neutron; Do you speak French too? I can't remember where I parked the car most of the time, let alone things with numbers on.
