Hi Jan, Thanks for posting this photo of Auntie Blossom which has been in our family archive for generations but where did you find it? I know it was published as a postcard and was for sale in Bath and the Dorset area where it was discovered, by strange coincidence, by my daughter Leanne who lives in Poole and has worked for the Royal Mail there for the past 6 years. So she is the 2nd Miss Stevens in our family to be a Dorset Postlady. After WW1 Auntie B spent the rest of her life on Canvey and is most probably remembered my many for looking after Whittier Hall and weighing babies at the Clinic.
