Martin Chapender postcard

Martin Chapender postcard

The original photograph was signed by Chapender prior to it being re-photographed and converted into postcard format. We do not know the name of the person who sent the card (the handwriting is not obviously that of Chapender), but the message on the front is amusing: As it is such a short time since we met, I have nothing to say except “Don’t Giggle” H. The card was addressed to Miss Nellie Purdy, 68 Mulgrave Street, Liverpool.
