Postcard from A M Shearsmith to Revé Ferry, posted 24th April 1909, picture side

Postcard donated by Paul J Roethenbaugh (1945-52). The card was written and posted on 24th April 1909 by A M Shearsmith who, unusually, placed the stamp on the ‘picture side’. The stamp cost 1d (1 penny in old money), which is for example only 1/80th of the value of a stamp in 2004. King Edward died just over a year later.

Written on picture side: Yr friend A.M. Shearsmith 24/4/09
