An entertaining postcard from the Knight Series, No. 579. The Map Shewing the Course of the Truelove River outlines the many peaks and troughs to be experienced en route to the Sea of Matrimony. It charts the route through the 'Evasion Rapids' past the 'Despair Marsh' onto 'Tenderness Crossing' and 'Kissing Ford', before things take a turn for the worse at 'Opposition Bend', which is followed by 'Separation Deep' and 'Misery Marsh', before communications resume at 'Correspondence Outlet', until finally the destination of 'Honeymoon Island' in the 'Sea of Matrimony' is reached! The river becomes deeper and wider along its course, as measured in the unit of 'Loversmiles'. The compass in the bottom right spells out L-O-V-E, and it even has a friend zone, 'Friendship Corner'. Postmarked January 1930, the card was sent to a recipient in Salisbury with text made up in a code, which we have been unable to break! Small repaired tear at top left.
