An image from a postcard that was posted in Sydenham on the 17th. March 1910 to an address in Arragon Gardens Streatham.
What the recipient read over a hundred years ago was as follows:
This is the card that I said I would get you. I could not get a photo of Rev. Dunn they said he would not have his photo taken to be sold but never mind this one is very good of him isn't it?
I haven't had a card from you, hope to do so and that you are quite well.
Your loving friend Louisa".
So what else happened on the day that the card was posted?
