Today's posted picture needed - I felt - a little more explanation which there wasn't room for on Instagram.
A couple of weeks ago I bought a beautifully embroidered silk WW1 postcard. When I got it home I was fascinated to read the message on the back of it.
"Dear Annie, will you give Lottie this card as it is from a friend far across the sea. Hoping to meet you someday soon or after the war Annie" then there is some rubbed out writing. The address section simply reads "To Lottie from William"
Who was William? Was Lottie related to Annie or maybe a friend? Did they ever get to meet each other? Did it end in a romantic way or not?
Part of me would love to know the story behind the card - part of me is happy to imagine and fill in the story for myself. Curiosity.......
