“OF ALL THE GIRLS 'TIS NICE TO MEET MANCHESTER GIRLS ARE HARD TO BEAT" in 1908

I rather think it must have been a slow day in the design room of Tuck and Sons when they came up with this picture postcard.

Here were six Manchester girls and just to underline that fact we have a picture of the Town Hall.

I may go off searching for the series from which it came to see what the other “Belles” were like.

But in the meantime I shall just leave you with the card and the title which must have taxed someone’s imagination, “OF ALL THE GIRLS 'TIS NICE TO MEET MANCHESTER GIRLS ARE HARD TO BEAT”
