Here we are publishing a nice collection of post cards showing Bembridge. Most probably all these post cards are coming from a time when Bembridge was built in a Smith's Dock. Some of them are from a time when a brand new THPV Bembridge started to have a name of one of the most famous life boat station Bembridge.

First let's look at the history of Bembridge at

After such a wide presentation of old Bembridge village everybody will give a question: how this village looks today?

We have a contact with one guy living in Bembridge. Mike Samuelson has already sent us a nice picture - Bembridge today - from an air. I hope quite soon we will present more pictures from Mike.
