Bray Resident Emma Cassoni was both surprised and intrigued when she came across a vintage postcard during recent house renovations. The aged article was found between two walls in her home.
Taking it to the Social media knowledge base returned some interesting suggestions as to where the card was from, who sent it and what it might say.
Filipino, Gaelic, French, English, biteen Irish and Double Dutch have all been put forward as the potential language used on the handwritten card. Postmarked Moose Jaw, it is certain where the postcard originated from – that being Moose Jaw, a Saskatchewan City in Canada. Emma has since taken to the ‘Moose Jaw Pages’ on social media to try and shed some further light on the mysterious card.
One Bray local added to the discussion that he believed the addressee was in fact a Mr. Noel Faure Harrison of Sliabh Fana, Newcourt Road, Newcourt Road being a more recent name for the place which would previously been know simply as ‘Bray Head.’
Perhaps you remember or are related to an Engineer by the name of Harrison who may have lived in Bray during the 1920’s? Can you help decode the 1926 postcard?
