R Payne Jnr. Guyhirne. 6d Reverse as obverse. Black on white card with surrounding metal rim. ca 33.4mm. A little grubby, otherwise F or better*. 1950s ? Holed, as issued, though it is not apparent as to whether this serves to indicate something, or was part of the process of manufacture.
In 1925 the business was in the name of R Payne, Fruit Grower, Wishbech. Presumably the father of the issuer.
Guyhirn is a typical English fenland village, situated on the north bank of the navigable river Nene 20 miles from the Wash. Ten years ago a new bridge was built across the Nene to take the busy A47 Peterborough to Wisbech road away from the centre of the village and form a junction with the A141 road to March, Ely and Huntingdon. On the opposite bank the B1187 takes traffic from the A47 towards Lincolnshire.
