Postcard sent in 1909 saying that my Great Aunt was looking forward to the King and Queen and princess Sophia coming to the city later in the week.

Grandma sent her mother this card which was most unlike her but her mother had given her an extra penny!

High Tor, Matlock. They rowed on the river and the weather was beautiful.

Posted 1907 as a birthday card to my Grandmother's mother. I wonder if the "present Post Office" is still there?

This was sent in 1909 by my Great Aunt to her sister in The County Asylum, Narboro'.(another story) She cycled from Birmingham to pick wild daffodils in Love Lane (Well, that was her story anyway!)

It could be The Industrial School, Newcastle upon Tyne, or nearby. Or it could be Ashby de la Zouch or somewhere in Leicestershire. Help if you can. Perhaps you recognise an old relative?

The photo of the crowd is definitely in Ashby de la Zouch. I suddenly made out some names on the stones and one is G Brown who was a Printer in Ashby. My Grandfather completed his apprenticeship there in about 1910. I wonder if anyone recognises relatives in the photo?
