There is an art of the postcard maker that we have yet to highlight. How to make a potentially pretty scene look dismal and dispiriting.
Hastings is a pretty town on the Sussex South Coast and it also receives the best of the English weather. So why publish a postcard with such a bleak scene as this?
Maybe it’s supposed to look arty or mysterious as opposed to plain awful. Whatever the photographer’s thoughts were, would it make you want to visit Hastings?
