Anna Brodsky
Letter
1916
This brief message may have been written during the Great War when Nina Grieg (singer, wife of Edvard Grieg) corresponded in English to avoid censorship. In this very brief note, Anna Brodsky (wife of Adolph Brodsky, RMCM Principal) commends Nina for her good English. Anna is glad that they [Nina and her sister Tonny] are better and asks them to promise to visit to Bowdon if they are really coming to England in the New Year. The original is dated 7 Jan [c1916], and it is unclear when this photocopy was made.
Reference number: AB/916
This was digitised as part of the HLF funded project "Revealing and Reinterpreting 'Making Music in Manchester during WW1'"
