The following postcard, postmarked Birmingham and dated 31st December 1902, addressed to Miss M. Johnson, Napier Villa, Wylde Green with the word Local written on it, has been kindly given to us by a lady in Australia, having been part of her collection.
It reads as follows:-
I do hope you will like this for I think it is so pretty. I will send you another PC soon, then we shall be equal again.
With best love & wishes for the New Year.

However, we should be pleased to know if this information is of use to anybody researching their family tree.
(With thanks to Penny Jennings for help in locating “Napier Villa”)
