This one was mailed in 1952 - however, from the lack of traffic and the

Chapel Street and Town Hall, Stratford-upon-Avon

William Shakespeare lived in New Place from about 1610 until his death in 1616. It was an
impressive brick building,  the second largest in Stratford at the time. After Shakespeare died,
the house was sold to an eccentric gentleman, the Rev Francis Gastrell who, wishing to avoid
taxes, knocked the house down. This so annoyed Stratford residents that they drove him out
of the town and banned anyone with the name Gastrell from ever living in Stratford. Hence
today we can only see some of the foundations, and no doubt there are very few Gastrells in
the town !
