Post cards














This eclectic mix of objects was discovered in one of the chimneys of St David’s, during the summer schedule of refurbishment at the Prep School. It includes a memo from a local stationers, an invitation from the Young Abstainers Union; Berkhamsted Branch, several ‘At Home’ invites and postcards from such far flung places as Andover and Jerusalem! Most all of the correspondence is addressed to members of the Footner family, St David’s, Berkhampstead.The very faded photographs and the little Christmas card have no names or dates but the name of the ship on the buoy, held by the young man in the front row is ‘Inverurie’. The delicate pair of scissors have parts of the words Tottenham Court Road along one of the blades. These assorted treasures and information about the Footner family is now on display above the fireplace, where they were discovered.
