Postcard

"Here is a postcard of Lutton Place.  It has never been through the post and  there is no makerís name.  Curiously, the image is not centred on the page.  There may be a reason for this?"

If the postcard was published in 1902 or earlier, it will have an 'undivided back' only the address being permitted on the back.  So the small space on the right-hand side on the front would have been left for the sender to add a brief message.

Early 1900s

"I donít know the age of this postcard.  It has no distinguishing marks, but it seems to pre-date the motor car.

St Peterís Episcopal Church can be seen in the foreground on the right with St Leonards Church and Arthurís Seat in the distance.

1931

Brian mentioned that his grandparents moved to the 'main door' at 31 Lutton Place in 1931.  Please click on the thumbnail image below to enlarge the image and read more about No. 13.
