The signature was abbreviated to E. Meach - I'm not sure who it is yet, but expect to solve over the coming year. I think the Meach is an abbreviation of Meachen and the E is Elizabeth, Emma or Edward or Eliza. Who is C? And why didn't anyone use punctuation in the early 1900s?
Thanks for the card Don't expect to leave here for sometime Hope to have a letter from you soon - kisses for C. & much love to yourself. All Well E. Meach -
Freston Tower still stands today on the banks of the River Orwell, south of Ipswich, Suffolk in the village of Freston. It is a six story red brick folly (a building constructed mostly for decoration). Possibly the oldest folly in England. The Landmark Trust, a preservation charity and owner of the Freston Tower indicate the tower "was built in 1578 by a wealthy Ipswich merchant called Thomas Gooding." And, it's available for rent. Sleeps four. Perhaps someday I can grab a few family members for a holiday there...
