The Walsh Collection

A collection of about 70 postcards and photos of Nayland and Wiston, including the East Anglian Sanatorium, was presented to the Society by Mrs. Sarah Blake, a member of the Walsh family, in December 2012.  We are most grateful to her and will record these images as the Walsh collection. Some of the scenes are new to the archive and a selection have been added here.

Martin Wright has offered a bottle of champagne to the first person who can positively (with proof) identify the occasion and people involved in the tea party at the Queen's Head.

The Thorpe Collection

Samples of a collection of postcards which has recently been donated to the Society and includes some new views of the village as well as studies of members of the Thorpe family.   Many of the postcards were sent to Margaret Thorpe between 1906 and 1911 we are most grateful to the donor for this collection.
