Wilson & Mrs W. Hoskin

by Richard Overy

Postcard bought from an Antiques Fair in Kinver last Sunday.

The back of the image doesn’t contain any information although the photograph shows the names of the people who lived at the properties in the windows above the doors.

Wilson , 7 Laurel Bank and Mrs W.Hoskin 5.

There is also another address at the top of the photo which reads 5 Noyna

I like the mixture of expressions on their faces and the few who have moved appearing like ghosts.

Unfortunately Laurel Bank is quite a common address and a search of google streetview hasn’t provided me with match.
