'Just off to Wood Green'

Bought recently from a gentleman collector and for sale in an impromptu and quite sizeable outbreak of ephemera and other delights in the archival backwater of my website known as 'Just in, Sir' a postcard from Arcadia of the 'Fish and Eels' Public House on the banks of the River Lea at Hoddesdon.  The Fish and Eels was established in the early 1800's by the Christie Brewery.  

The back of the postcard was filled in and addressed but was never sent.  It is signed off 'Just off to Wood Green but returning here tonight I hope.  Cheerio'.
