The Postcard A postcard bearing no publisher's name that was printed in Great Britain. The image is a glossy real photograph. Note the 'H'-shaped TV aerial on the left that was for black and white TV. The card was posted in Evesham, Worcs. on Friday the 12th. July 1957 to: A. R. MacWilliam Esq., 3, Whitehall Court, London S.W.1. A. R. MacWilliam was an art collector. The book 'Degas - The Artist's Mind' by Theodore Reff includes a copy of the oil painting 'Luncheon on the Grass' by Tissot, painted circa 1865. The caption states that the painting is from the collection of A. R. MacWilliam of London. The message on the divided back of the card was as follows: "12th. July 1957. Thank you for your advice to come here. It is lovely, and the peace and quiet very much appreciated. Weather is awful but the countryside looks the better for it, and we do get some watery sun on occasions! Food excellent and too much! Ian has joined us for a few days so we will get some golf. Love from all, Sandy". Mickleton Mickleton, with a population of 1,677 (UK Census 2011), is the northernmost village in Gloucestershire, England. It lies close to the county border with Worcestershire and Warwickshire. The village lies 8 miles south of Stratford-upon-Avon at the western edge of the Cotswold escarpment in the Vale of Evesham. Chipping Campden lies 3 miles to the south. Mickleton Attractions Mickleton is noted for its market gardening and vegetable growing. Young plants, seed plugs, apples, cauliflowers and asparagus are grown locally. Meon Hill, scene of the so-called 'witchcraft' murder of Charles Walton in 1945, lies to the north of the village. Meon Hill is said to have provided inspiration for Tolkien's 'Weathertop' from The Lord of the Rings. According to legend, Meon Hill was formed by the Devil. He intended to throw a clod of earth at Evesham Abbey, but missed, and the earth formed the hill. Mickleton has two old pubs, the King's Arms and the Butcher's Arms, and a hotel, Three Ways House Hotel. Sited on a green in front of the hotel is a memorial fountain by the Victorian architect William Burges. The Church of St Lawrence is an Anglican parish church. It contains a memorial to Utrecia Smith, the daughter of a curate of Mickleton whose father was also a schoolmaster. Utrecia had been the fiancée of the writer Richard Graves (who broke off their engagement); she died in 1744 aged 30. At the heart of village activities is King George's Hall, located at the centre of the village and home to the many clubs and societies that thrive in the village. The Heart of England Way runs through the village. The village has many B&B's that have been set up privately in people's own homes. Local market towns and villages include Broadway, Chipping Campden, Stratford-upon-Avon, Moreton-in-Marsh and Evesham. Both Hidcote Manor Garden and Kiftsgate Court Gardens are located nearby. Christopher Quinten So what else happened on the day that Sandy posted the card? Well, the 12th. July 1957 marked the birth in Middlesbrough of Christopher Bell who changed his name to Christopher Quinten. Christopher Quinten is a British actor, best known for his role as Brian Tilsley on Coronation Street, which he played from 1978 to 1989. Christopher Quinten's Career Quinten started his career as a dancer in West End productions, including the Victoria Palace with Cilla Black and Jimmy Tarbuck. He turned to acting, and had his first role in the 1978 film International Velvet, starring Tatum O'Neal. This appearance led to small parts in television series including Quatermass and Hazell, and was also noticed by the Coronation Street casting offices, who gave Ivy Tilsley, the oft-seen Baldwin's worker, a son. Quinten was then signed to the programme, for which he worked for over a decade. His pairing with Gail Potter (played by Helen Worth) proved very popular for the serial in the 1980's. In 1989, Quinten told the casting office that he was going to move to the United States to marry his then-fiancée, American talk show host Leeza Gibbons. The couple had met in 1988 in New Zealand while appearing on a Telethon. Christopher had been hoping to stay in Coronation Street as a part-time character, but the producers rejected his offer, and at the end of 1988 the decision was made to kill the character off. His final episode was aired on the 15th. February 1989, when Brian Tilsley was stabbed to death by a gang of teenagers outside a nightclub. Once settled in the United States, Quinten and Gibbons worked together on the film RoboCop 2 (in which he played a reporter), and had one daughter, Lexi Quinten. The couple divorced in 1991. Quinten married Paula Holmes in 1992, but they later separated. Quinten then returned to Britain and appeared on various chat shows. In 1994, he played Mr. Barraclough in an episode of the ITV comedy series Surgical Spirit. In 1998, he toured the country with a one-man comedy rock act, and was also working as an after-dinner speaker. In 2000, he briefly returned to television acting with a guest role in the BBC soap opera Doctors. Christopher has had a long career in pantomimes. In 2010 he played Abanazar in the Consett Empire's production of Aladdin, and Ramsbottom in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs at Oswaldtwistle Civic Theatre in 2011. He appeared in Peter Kay's Sit Down for Comic Relief sketch alongside Rustie Lee & Bob Carolgees. In 2016 it was reported that Quinten was working at Stringfellows nightclub in London. In April 2020, he appeared in an episode of Hollyoaks as Mark Kelly. Christopher Quinten's Personal Life In August 2005, Quinten was charged with rape, but in June 2006, he was cleared of this charge. With partner Alison Slater (ex-Stringfellow's dancer), he has a daughter Sydney (b. 2005). Quinten was married to American talk show host Leeza Gibbons from 1989–1991. On the 10th. June 2019, Quinten became engaged to his lap dancer girlfriend, Robyn Delabarre, on her twenty-first birthday. Elvis Presley Also on the 12th.
