Synopsis

From the charming to the jocular to the romantic, this is a spectacular collection of 100 Edwardian postcards. In 1900, aged twenty and travelling from Havana to Europe, Margarita Johnson met and fell in love with the dashing gold prospector Charles Lumb. Her father disapproved, and after three years of secret postcards, the couple eloped to London. Cut out of her father's will, Margarita was never welcomed again in Havana. Margarita treasured her postcards from Charles, her family and friends, who wrote from England America and Europe. They remained with her until she died in 1959. Years later they were found by her granddaughter, tucked away in a cubby hole, and are here seen for the first time. After their secret wedding, Margarita and Charles settled in England. Margarita's mother and siblings visited her regularly from Cuba, but her father remained true to his word. They had five children, all of whom spent time visiting the family in Cuba. Margarita and Charles remained devoted to each other for the rest of their lives."
