Who lives in a house like this?
« on: Monday 26 September 16 13:44 BST (UK) »
I would love to know where this house was and who lived in it..it was posted in North Ferriby which is an East Yorkshire village not far from Hull. I have tried a Google match without success.
It would  be lovely to return this lovely image to it's rightful home with a little help from my friends  ;D
THanks for looking.

and the back...it would appear that the sender probaly worked at the house. The address should read Princes Avenue not Princess...It also says..."This is the house and ?????? Can't read the other word.

I really love it and hope it has survived in it's original state Ruskie...I will have to have a ride out to see if I can find it....wouldn't it be great to walk up that drive, knock on the door and say.."This is your house in the early 1900s"  ;D

Oh yes! Very exciting!!! I am keeping everything crossed that it can be identified and it is still standing (and hopefully it remains as a single dwelling).  :)

Oh yes, that word does look like Sophie (I couldn't work out what it was).

No one called "Sophie" seems to be living in Nth Ferriby in the 1911 census (of course this photo may have been taken elsewhere and the card simply posted in Nth Ferriby), or they may have moved by 1919 ...
