Onslow House Gedney Drove End

This postcard was posted with a “Gedney Drove End, Wisbech” postmark on 14th August. Sadly the date isn’t legible but it’s got a George V stamp so must be post 1910 and almost certainly pre-1937. It was posted to a Miss G. Butcher of 4 Market Street, Ely. Does that name mean anything to anyone? The message reads “Dear Gert. Just a line to say I got there safe and we are well. Been on the marsh, the tide was up well. Found Mother well, she was at the station. The sun is a treat now. We all send our love to you. From Mum” Well it looks like “from Mum” but I could have read that wrong.

I have to confess I don’t know anything about Onslow House and the families that have lived there but I’m sure that many of you do! Does it look any different now?
