Could the Alice be her sister  "The informant was Mrs. Alice (Lamond)? signature not easy to read, address 920 North 45th Street.."

Any way of working out who Alice was?

Thanks again for all your help

As a start, a 1950 Philadelphia city directory might clarify Alice's surname.  Sorry, though, I don't have access to any directories for that time period.
Wiltshire:  Banks, Taylor
Somerset:  Duddridge, Richards, Barnard, Pillinger
Gloucestershire:  Barnard, Marsh, Crossman
Bristol:  Banks, Duddridge, Barnard
Down:  Ennis, McGee
Wicklow:  Chapman, Pepper
Wigtownshire:  Logan, Conning
Wisconsin:  Ennis, Chapman, Logan, Ware
Maine:  Ware, Mitchell, Tarr

Looks like "Leonard" to me.

Checking the passenger list Bridget Browne aged 48 years travelled Goales Ireland to Philadelphia PA arriving 8 December 1920 on the Haverford. Nearest relative was Lizzie McCullough, Doon, Draperstown Co Derry. Bridget had been in the USA for 18 years previously - had left in October 1919.

Nearest relative in USA was Mrs Patrick Leonard 2129 North, 13 st Philadelphia.
