From William, France

01 February 2020

William, Bretagne, France

Not quite a classic card, but certainly one with a twist. I am a Thatcher exit, driven from the UK by her wild swipes at the universities. Via Provence and New Zealand, I am now in Brittany since 2006 which is where my wife obtained a job. One thing about my life here: I'm near the sea!


This postcard is one of several collated as part of collaboration between Dr Michaela Benson and the Migration Museum. A selection of these appears in the Postcards from the British in Europe installation in Departures, the museum's current exhibition exploring four centuries of emigration from Britain, bringing Britain’s emigration story and its emigrants into the national conversation about migration
