Wednesday Postcard: Snapshot 1945


"On 8 May 1945 on Whitehall celebrate Victory in Europe, after hearing Prime Minister Winston Churchill tell the people of Britain  'This is your victory'. After almost six years of war, the fight in Europe was finally over (fighting in the Far East against Japan continued until 15 August). As night fell, fairly decorous festivities gave way to noisier, more excitable celebrations in which drink flowed, fireworks exploded and complete strangers linked arms and danced in the street."

Thank you to Donna for sharing this card with me! Happy Wednesday, everyone!
