A little bit of Salford in Wellingborough ..........

Now I just wonder if anyone at Tuck and Son ever owned up to their mistake at calling Salford Manchester?

Given that they were an international postcard company with offices around the world and churning out 
scenes from New York to Paris I doubt it.

Nor I suspect did David who sent the card to Miss Baldwin back in 1905.

But then there is no reason he should as he like her lived in Wellingborough which is a long way from Salford.

Tuck continued to maintain the mistake with a series of pictures of Salford landmarks which went under the title of Manchester.

Location; Salford

Picture; “Manchester Technical School, Salford,' circa 1904, from the collection of Mrs Bishop
