I studied this week's Sepia Saturday prompt closely this week but alas could not find anything to stay even remotely on theme, so have decided to go complete off theme this week. I picked up the vintage postcard below in a recent haul just before Christmas. I'd never heard of the actor in question, Mr Kyrle Bellew, but after a quick investigation I found he was quite a character with quite a history. Bellew spent much of his childhood in India before returning to England and joining the Navy where he spent time aboard HMS Conway, before finally turning to acting, where he spent much of his stage career alongside Mrs Brown-Potter (who funnily enough I also have a vintage postcard of ... this was not planned when I started my post).

As usual, 100's more vintage postcards on my web site
