Sometimes people get in touch with your Editor and it links in to other subjects in a very satisfying manner. In 2014 Neil Mahler sent an interesting email to GeoSuffolk Times - which happens to be the province of our Honorary Secretary - and it was forwarded to me. The stimulus was the unveiling in Lacey Street of the Society's blue plaque celebrating Charles Whitfield King, whose international postage stamp business rivalled that of Stanley Gibbons. Such is the plethora of Ipswich topics and issues that this event was not covered in the Newsletter at the time. It proved to be a memorable afternoon with a street event (helped by the recent shutting-off of the road due to a sink-hole): food, drink, music and an exhibition about ‘The Stamp King' with members of the family present. There was also a chance to look inside Morpeth House, particularly at The Stamp Room, a lounge which still has some of the wall decorations created out of thousands of postage stamps, with the date (in stamps) ‘1892'. Neil takes us to another interesting Lacey Street building, Rotherham House which links, in turn, to our article about Italianate architecture and signoral towers in Issue 207; see page 6.
Many thanks to all the contributors to this issue.
