postcard

TUCK’s postcard of a Coldstream Guard.

A postcard written to Dear Mother, I hope you have arrived safely. I have enjoyed myself very much there. Yours, Dorothy. Dated 5 August 1915, sent from Chester to Mrs Parr of 47 Irwell Street, Widnes, Lancs.

Looking to be returned to the PARRS family.

Research notes: we found Dorothy Parr in the 1911 census, at 47 Irwell Street, Widnes. She was 11 years old and living with her parents, George Frederick and Mary Elizabeth Parr, along with her two brothers, Frances Naylor and James Ronald. Dorothy’s father, George, was a schoolmaster at the local council school.
