Published by H&H Series, (Horne and Hague) no. 23 , 2 Waterworth St. Nelson, Pendle, Lancs. It was common from 1902 for messages to appear on the back of the postcard telling the user that the space could 'now' be used for a message, but for inland postage only as was found on the reverse of this postcard. The 'now' was dropped around 1906 dating this card to circa 1905.
