|First, welcome to all the new readers coming here from my Poems Please Me pages on Facebook. One reader, Stefan, recognised that he lived next door, for a while in the 1980s, to the house pictured (right) - that's immediately opposite Uncle Fred. That has prompted me to scan the reverse of the 'photo postcard' of the house. The card was sent through the post, despite going just across the road, as a Christmas greeting in 1908 or 1910. The Mr & Mrs French referred to are Fred's mum and dad. - Tony French. |
P.S. I love the copperplate handwriting!
