When Salford went to Shrewbury

Now I am intrigued by this postcard sent by Ellen to Miss Mullins who was living at Hook – a- Gate near Shrewsbury.

Now I can’t be sure where Ellen was in October 1907 but it wasn’t Salford because the post mark is also Shrewsbury.

Which begs the question of why she should send a post card of the Royal Technical Institute from one address in Shrewsbury to another, and the answer is in the message.

She hoped that her friend “would like this for your album", told her that J was coming home and asked when Miss Mullins “was coming to see us again.”

Now there is no reason why a postcard of Salford should be in sale in Shrewsbury but that said I rather like the idea.

Location; Salford

Picture; Royal Technical Institute, circa 1907 from the collection of David Harrop
