  1. Love the envelope … and couldn’t help but notice how much simpler things were then .. the addressee most likely wouldn’t get the mailing today with an address as simple as shown. How times have changed. Again, beautiful card.

  2. Stoke Newington is a London suburb and Bloomsbury is the home of the British Museum close on to what I would call the center of London. Bloomsbury is immortalized in a song from the score of The Boy Friend(Sandy Wilson, composer).

    I agree the letter might have difficulties today but they do still try in my country. But many years(c1970) I tried this from to Germany(Wiesbaden) to Paris to contact Pathe-Marconi Records(French Columbia Records) and it came back for that similar type of address and this was a hugely well-known company. They don’t bother.
