Identification Longshot and Talking Point 1164

Good Evening All

This is A GENUINE UNIDENTIFIED POSTCARD because the title is illegible. It was posted in Hereford in 1909 to an address in Dorstone, Hereford.

Brumas there is some white lettering at the bottom of the postcard. Can you make out what it says?

  Brumas 23:13 15 Aug 2014

QuizMan when I enlarge the text it is worse.

  QuizMan 23:20 15 Aug 2014

OK, thanks. The reason I ask is that it seems to start "Tur" and there is a Turnastone in Herefordshire near one of the places mentioned.

QuizMan I thought it was two words, the second word being Villas but younger eyes than mine would probably see it differently.

It must be the summer holidays.

Here's my interpretation of the hand-written message which seems to be truncated a tad on the LHS of the postcard:-

can not see you. Mr Wyatt is attending the masonic ceremony as a

unan nounced escort or Gooseberry. Please not expect George to-morrow

as he may be Thrashing. Yours truly L.R. Blissett.

The white chalky 'lettering' might be marks made by the children as part of a jumping street-game similar to 'peaver' or 'hopscotch'.

Woolwell - those were my thoughts too.

  Aitchbee 19:47 16 Aug 2014

Your right enough Woolwell about the 'mounted' escort part - the word never occured to me - doh!

...and the girls seem to be in uniform - that's why I agreed about your remark at 7:34pm.

BTW, Why does Brumas say it was posted in 1909 when the postage frank seems to indicate 29 Sept-1902?
