1900 letter card – lost jacket

It is quite amazing that this little card has survived well over 100 years. I bet “A Page” would be surprised to see it reproduced here:

20 Coombe Terrace
Lewes Road
June 10th 00

Dear Sir,

When at the Gardens yesterday with the Congregational outing I left a jacket on one of the tables in the dining room. Could you kindly inform me if you have found same and oblige.

Yours respectfully,

A Page

P.S. The jacket is a navy blue with small pearl buttons.

Just out of curiosity, I searched on Google Street View for number 20 Coombe Terrace and found this building which is also a fish and chip shop. Click here to view on Street View.
