In 2003, Francesca bought a second-hand postcard for 50p addressed to Miss L Gibbs and sent 100 years ago. An amusing journey that asks how we remember those that went before us and how we might like to be remembered ourselves.

The postcard, sent from Lincoln to London was addressed to a Miss L Gibbs of 62 Douglas Buildings, Marshalsea Road, Borough. Sent on July 15th 1910, the message on the back simply reads:

Part detective noir, part personal biography, Francesca investigates the message on a postcard sent 100 years ago and finds herself obsessed by the life of the woman that received it.
