Letter Posted in 1916, Reached to its Destination After a Century

More than a century after it was originally mailed from Bath, a letter lost in the mail in 1916 was finally delivered to a London address.

It arrived via the letterbox of theatre director Finlay Glen’s Crystal Palace apartment in 2021, bearing a penny George V stamp and the postmarks Bath and Sydenham.

According to research by Stephen Oxford, the editor of the neighborhood history magazine The Norwood Review, it was sent by her friend Christabel Mennell, who was vacationing in Bath and was addressed to Katie Marsh, who was married to the stamp dealer Oswald Marsh.
