Thanks Carol ...we must have ESP, I've just found that site myself!  :D

GH actually lived at the PO in 1891 and 1901 ... I'm assuming in the rooms upstairs ... how fab are the old pictures?!

I appreciate you taking an interest.

Purely as matter of interest the picture is printed the wrong way round, unless postmen button up ladies fashion.
Are we able to turn it?
