Postcard of the Rising Sun

I have just purchased an expensive old postcard of the Sun. It was sent ( more likely handed as not mailed) by publican Edwin Cook and his wife Susannah to a Mr. and Mrs. Jiggins. Edwin appears to have been the publican from 1901-1917 and was widowed in 1909 when Susannah died, so we can date the card from 1901-1909. That is surprising for parked outside is the Brentwood and Snaresbrook four in hand stagecoach.
