Ruth Harker Postcard Collection
These postcards were collected by Miss Ruth Harker: there are over 250 of them, dating from the early 1900s to 1973. The earliest cards are addressed to Heugh Farm, Satronside, Gunnerside with later cards sent to Paynes Farm, Nazeing, Waltham Cross, Essex; Oxford Villas, Wormley and Wood Green Farm, Cheshunt, Herts.

The messages are mainly concerned with parcels sent and received, weather conditions, visits and holidays although the correspondents occasionally mention characters/events sometimes connected with Swaledale. They are listed in chronological order where this can be ascertained.
