This postcard is another of my favourites: Simply titled City Centre, East Kilbride, it was going to be used in a feature for the Scottish Daily Mail. Unfortunately, my timing being as good as ever, it co-incided with the release of Martin Parr’s Boring Postcards book and the Daily Mail itself had already planned to feature him.

The card was sent in 1974, a golden era for Boring Postcards, and the writer was having a lovely time apparently! It does however appear that they lived in Wood Green so East Kilbride probably seemed quite pleasant in comparison.
