Tilbury Hotel Postcard

collected by Charles Thomas Nichols

from Seamus Heffernan

Before the Second World War, Charles Thomas Nichols who was a ship’s engineer on the Blue Funnel Line, collected postcards which he sent home from the European cities he visited (including Tilbury).¬†He died in the 1980s and the collection passed to his family.

This view of the Tilbury Hotel was apparently¬†produced as a marketing tool by the hotel as the info on the back sounds like an advert and includes the phone numbers: “Tilbury 181 or 470”.

Thanks to Seamus Heffernan for the information and image.
