Open cards featuring Marple & District
Following on from the success of our first set of postcards we introduced a range of eight open cards showing that the canals are not Marple's only asset. Later we added a further four open cards to the range, taking the total number of designs to twelve. The cards were all blank inside, so they could be used for any purpose, and featured photographs of local attractions. In addition to canal scenes there were pictures of Roman Bridge, Oldknow's Shuttle Stone, Mellor Church, Brabyns Lodge, the Keg Pool at Compstall, Hilltop Farm, Roman Lakes and Marple Bridge.
The remaining stock of these cards was donated to New Horizons, the narrowboat for the disabled based at Marple Wharf, who continued to sell them for the benefit of the charity.
