T1872. The visit of King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra in 1905 to open the new No. 9 Dock required a great deal of preparation and planning. It was decided that the older people of Stretford should receive either a presentation tin of tea, for the women, or tobacco, for the men, to mark the occasion. Mr Abrahams had written to Messers Binyon & Robinsons asking about the price of presentation tins of tea for the elderly women of Stretford. After receiving a sample of the product, the Council placed an order with them for the 150 tins of tea:

The Urban District Council of Stretford
G. H. Abrahams Esq
We are obliged
for your esteemed order for 150 - ' lb.
tins of tea at 1/- per tin
which shall have our best attention.
Monday will be in time for the cards yours truly
