First World War, group of female factory workers

This postcard was sent to a Miss Gross of City Road, Norwich, during the First World War. The message on the back reads: ‘I find I am on night duty again, so I shall be ever so glad to see you on Wednesday. Had a pleasant surprise in the shape of a rise (4 shillings) which means also a second stripe, With Love Elsie’. This is just one of several hundred newly digitised original photographs, posters and notices connected with the First World War in Norfolk. The material is all held in the collections of the Norfolk Heritage Centre and over the course of the next few years will be posted on (the online picture archive for Norfolk County Council Library and Information Service)
