1908 Suffragette Prison Strike related RP Postcard Northumberland War Memorial
Real photograph postcard of The Northumberland War Memorial, June 1908, Newcastle. Photographer's name is R. It has been written on and postally used then sent to a Miss S. Layfield of Castle Chare, Durham. It has a half penny stamp in the corner and has been franked at Newcastle-Tyne, 1918. I've just quickly read the postcard and the man writing it has mentioned that his wife has gone to prison for a month because she was a Suffragette so he will be joining the strike. Interesting postcard which is worthy of a little more research to find out which lady was in prison during this time. Unique hand written first account of things during this time. In collectable condition with normal signs of age and use wear.
The edges and corners are worn. Please see pictures for more details and visual confirmation of condition.
