Headline: A total eclipse of the heart (coronary bypass) - celebrating the full Eclipse 11 August 1999
Summary: At 11.12am, 11 August 1999 a full solar eclipse could be seen across Northern Europe. The best place in the British Isles to see the Eclipse was Cornwall and eclipse tourists flocked there in their thousands. Entrepreneurial locals opened their fields as temporary camp-sites and printed postcards and tea towels to mark the occasion. The above postcard links the eclipse with the traditional Cornish scene and Cornish Pasty instead of the eclipsing moon. Kernow (Cornish) humour.
