Hello, I wonder if anyone could help me with some information.
I collect old postcards and in a bundle which I recently purchased I found one which is a real photograph postcard showing the North side of Lees Court, Faversham. It was produced by W Hargrave, 82 Preston Street, Faversham.
The picture shows what look like injured soldiers sitting outside the building in wheelchairs and one standing next to a deckchair with his arm in a sling. With a magnifying glass it looks as if they are First World War personnel.
Was the building ever used as a hospital or recuperation home during the war?
If anyone has any information about this I would love to hear from them. My reason for collecting old postcards is to research social history and a find like this really makes my day.
