EJ Rudsdale on Twitter from 3 September 2019

26th September 1942

In this week’s “Standard” I saw recorded the death of Miss Florence Wire of Buckhurst Hill, daughter of Alfred and grand-daughter of William Wire.  I knew her quite well, and she frequently visited the Museum during the last few years. 

Drove out to Lawford early this evening.

The antiquarian, William Wire, had kept a diary of life in Colchester during the nineteenth century and E.J. Rudsdale had been in contact with Florence Wire during the 1930s when researching the life of her grandfather.  CP
