This postcard is a rare treat to see. A novelty card, the front of the picture shows a Bi Plane where the wing of the plane folds out to show different views of Herne Bay. The postcard is from a father to his child and is an eye witness account of seeing these planes.
The transcribed text reads:
‘I saw 5 of these air ships down on the ground last Thursday evening. They came down not 5 minutes walk from here. From father’
