Having explored the delights of the stamp shop collecting and feasting on the stamps of yesteryear I also gathered various First Day Covers (FDC) and commemoration postcards.
This one is a favourite and forms part of my Guildford and District Collection. As a child there was something rather magical in going to the post office and purchasing the First Day cover, addressing it to yourself and then awaiting it to be delivered.
This postcard was no exception. It was produced to celebrate the opening of the Head Post Office and the Philatelic Counter at Guildford on 21st October 1981.
