S1476 Abinger Hammer

Abinger Hammer

From Emma Corke : "I looked up the date in the Farrer's press-cutting book, and I found out that on 16th Dec 1931 Lord and Lady Farrer gave a dinner (at the Wotton Hatch) to the workmen who had been widening the A25 at Abinger. There was entertainment as well as the dinner, and the men were given presents of cigarettes and their 'wives and  sweethearts' chocolates. Probably the postcard accompanied one of these presents?"

The event was reported in the press cuttings uploaded.
