Postcards showing Wivenhoe as it was in the early 1900s (from John Stewart's extensive collection of Wivenhoe memorabilia).  Look for one of John Stewart's Exhibitions of Wivenhoe memorabilia. These are usually held in the Wm Loveless Hall once every year or two. John has amassed an amazing collection of documents and Wivenhoe items.
