London letter arriving 100 plus years later – talk about the mail being slow! My sincere thanks to long time AnchoredScraps blog subscriber Paul who shared this article with me just a few days ago – hot off the presses from BBC News. As a reminder the Post Offices in the U.S. are closed tomorrow with President’s Day Federal Holiday observance.
London letter arriving 100 plus years later!
The BBC News article by Harry Low writes about “A letter written in February 1916 has arrived at a flat in south London more than 100 years later.”
“The letter was written to “my dear Katie”, the wife of local stamp magnate Oswald Marsh, according to Stephen Oxford, editor of the Norwood Review, a quarterly local history magazine.
Oswald Marsh was a highly regarded stamp dealer who was often called as an expert witness in cases of stamp fraud.”
