A view of Heene Road in about 1910, with the turreted No. 84 just right of centre and Nos. 82 to 76 on the right. Just visible on the lower right is the credit: Photo  Worthing Portrait Co. Published by R B W. These are two famous names in the history of early Worthing postcards. The Worthing Portrait Company, located at 4, Railway Approach, not only published its own postcards but also provided photographs for various other publishers, in this case the stationers and booksellers Ramsden Brothers, which at that time traded from 7, The Broadway. The W in R B W stood for Worthing

The postcard was sent over a century ago by Jean Bellamy to Jean Dombre, who lived in Nantes, in western France.
