Cards wg1 - wg11 have all originated from the Workington area in the north of England and are all linked to each other. I think that Mr Fletcher and his sister shown in card wg3 lived in a large house and employed servants. Two of these I think are shown on cards wg4 and wg7 .

Wg4 shows a nurse who may have been responsible for looking after children in the ouse and wg7 shows a maid of some kind. She can be seen again in wg6 but this time in her best clothes. On the back of this card she is described as Mary of great grans friends ! Card wg5 shows “ The Rooney children “ who I can only think belong to Mary.

Card wg 8 also shows another of “ great grans friends “

Card wg1 shows Horace and Eric and was sent to Miss Fletcher with a thankyou note on the back for “ The nice presents “


All of the photographs were taken by R. Henderson, 45 Washington Street, Workington.
