Bottom of Newland Street looking up. Left hand side of road, left to right, 124 Newland Street (timbers two gables), 118-120 Newland Street (behind lamp post), probably 116 Newland Street, 114 Newland Street, 112 Newland Street. Right hand side of road, left to right, 129 Newland Street (with two sets of bay windows), 137 Newland Street (sign says ‘W ARDLEY / BAKER / Pony and trap / FOR HIRE’). In distance, clock is still on Constitutional Club on left, so not after 1910 when it was burnt down, in spite of George V stamp). Postmark not legible. Addressed to Mrs J A Kemp, Swanton Abbott, Norwich. Message reads ‘Avenue House Cottage, Witham, Dear Mrs Kemp, This will give you a slight idea of the awful place I have been moved to. I am afraid Lu[?] has not been very well lately. I am hoping to spend a week-end in Cromer a fortnight today. Kindest regards, H Bindham[?]’.
