An invitation to a dance?

Today we step away from the military and shopping – and are thinking of going to a dance….

Despite my best efforts I haven’t been able to trace Mrs Bateman of Collingwood Lodge.  The house was built in about the 1860s and may have been demolished, although I have found reference to one of the same name at 7 Portsmouth Road.

By 1904, when this postcard was written, the house had had many tenants and Mrs Bateman may not have played a great part in the town.  Does anyone know?
