Thank you for your reply Ruskie.  Yes, I thought there were 2 streets mentioned on it, but could't read the 2nd one.

Sorry I have no idea what the correspondence says.  :-\

Is this a photograph of the postcard? If you scan it I wonder if it might make it clearer?

I hope someone might be able to work some magic and enhance it for you.  :)

Looking at a modern day map of Stockport, Hatton Street is a turning off Princes Street  :)

I think the bottom part of the writing on the left side is the address again.

Looks like Mrs. M. White on the lower left portion, Just above Hatton Street.
