From Annie Hammond, 1904
A single postcard was found behind a stud wall on the top floor of 57 Kingsley Road, Preston, Brighton. The card, featuring two actors of the time (one is Miss Julia Neilson), carries a Christmas greeting from Annie Hammond of 31 Landsdowne Place, Hove to Mrs Ellen Steadman at Balmain, Kingsley Road, Preston, Brighton.
The contributor, Hannah Marshall-Quinn, has established that the actor and actress depicted on the front of the postcard were touring the country in a production of ‘Anthony and Cleopatra’ in 1904.
4 Dec 1904
“Dear Ellen. I daresay you will think I have quite forgotten you but I haven’t. I am coming to see you one of these fine days. From Annie Hammond”
