Usk in about 1927

Usk in about 1927 My father, Alfred Henry Watkins sent this post card from Usk to my mother, Alison Mary Lapham, in Birmingham in about 1929

the arrows point to
Tree in our own garden Woodbank, Bridge Street,
and Usk Castle and St Mary's church

they were to be married 23 Dec 1933 St John Baptist Church, Berkswell, Warwickshire

on the back he wrote, "Looking toward Abergavenny" and the plants in the foreground are bracken, and I remember walking up there with my mother and using broken off bracken fronds as a fly swatter.
