You can see 16 Hatton Street marked on this map https://www.old-maps.co.uk/#/Map/389377/390677/13/101329
Change the zoom as necessary.

Mrs McMahon. Mary McMahon can be found at 16 Hatton Street in one of the censuses

Which census Shaun? I thought I could see an M and another M, (either Mrs or Mc and surname also starting with an M) so this might fit.

Carol will be able to confirm, but this postcard looks to date from the early 1900s?

The most recent available.

On the post card there is some distance between Mc and Mahon.

1911 might fit date wise with the resident's location and date of card.

Yes, there is a gap between what may be a Mc and a Mahon. I also considered a Tho and a surname beginning with T, but it's not clear enough on my monitor to offer an opinion either way.  :)

I am guessing that the message infers that "Anyone finding this to please forward to Mrs. & Mrs. M. White" followed by another address similar to the postal address.

Ruskie....With the absence of a a stamp box, the only dateable feature is the divided back which was introduced in 1902 in the UK.

Could be. There's not much writing on there.  :-\

I thought the addition of "England" to the address on the right inferred that the card may have either been sent from or taken abroad somewhere. May fit with the request to return it if lost.  :-\

I googled the photographer but a brief look didn't find much - only found a few portraits from early 1900s.

Suzie what is on the other side of this card?
