A bit of a scrawl but I think it’s meant to say “From Yours”.

The signature suggests some sort of secret assignation!

Incidentally, the “Moor” is the area heading south west from Sheffield Town Hall. There’s nothing of what would have been there in 1906 left as it was heavily re-modelled during the WW2 hostilities.

Thank you for the info about Sheffield. I do think you are right as I can see "From Yours". It seems a strange sign off. Unless it is from her betrothed, my great grandfather John (aka Jack) Fouldes. I am not sure the handwriting really matches though. Plus cannot really make the scrawl to become "Jack Fouldes"


Well the second 'name' looks like F..... S so looks likely to have been her sweetheart

I wondered if it was supposed to be "Forever yours". With a correction in the middle.  :)
