Reading is the county town of Berkshire and lies at the confluence of the Rivers Thames and Kennet, just off the M4 motorway and about half way between London and Swindon. An abiding memory is picking up a copy of a book called "A History of Reading" and finding it was about the town of Reading and not "reading". For those of you who are not acquainted with this Berkshire town, it is pronounced "redding". (I wonder how the other Readings round the world are pronounced.) It is a bustling town with a good shopping centre, and has expanded beyond recognition over the past 45 years.

If you would like to buy a reproduction of any of our postcards of Reading, please visit our Zazzle Store. For your convenience, we have included a letter "Z" in the caption beneath those postcards for which Zazzle products using the image are available.

In conjunction with Zazzle, we have produced an extensive range of gifts, using images from these old postcards. The items available include many reproduction postcards, coffee mugs, Christmas cards, birthday cards, key chains, fridge magnets, watches etc. Most items may be personalised.
