An intriguing one here from reader Seth Weber – I’m not sure where he resides exactly, but his mother grew up in Brooklyn, New York during the war and had a penfriend Eileen Anslow, who lived on the Pleck Road in Walsall.
Seth is trying to trace Eileen or her family if possible – I’m wondering if the Anslow boys may be some assistance here? If not there are plenty of local history sleuths and archive diggers who I feel may be at a loose end who may like this one and be able to help.
My mother grew up in Brooklyn, New York.
During World War II she exchanged letters with a Walsall resident, Eileen Anslow, on Darlaston Rd.
Attached you will find photos of the letters. I tried some amateur sleuthing to find Ms. Anslow or relatives just to see if they are interested in seeing the letters after 75 years.
I was not as successful as I would wish.
Hoping maybe your blog or Facebook page members might aid in the search.
I include the letter images as supplied.
Thanks to Seth for a fascinating enquiry. I really hope we can help you my friend.
