Tq18a

My friend John Dike has sent me a large selection of images of his old Torquay postcard collection. I am going to use the images to make a video for one of my Torbay songs. Originally I was going to use one of the songs from the Torbay Pageant albums but then I decided to write a new song based around the images of the postcards. 


Postcards of Torquay


John's postcards that he sent to me

Scenes of a past time of that town by the sea

Postcards of Torquay that he sent to me

Scenes of a past time of that town by the sea


Quaint little Anstey's cove

A tranquil treasure trove

With picnics and hot tea

A little house there by the sea


John's postcards that he sent to me

Scenes of a past time of that town by the sea

Postcards of Torquay that he sent to me

Scenes of a past time of that town by the sea


The gardens in Torquay

Such a lovely sight to see

With picnics and hot tea

Beneath a fine palm tree

There's no time to write letters

So postcards must do

Oh no time to write letters

Oh which one should I send to you

Pleasure boats for hire

If you so desire

Then picnic and hot tea

In Torbay by the sea
