Description:
White cotton huck towel with fringed edge. 'M E Port' handwritten in ink in one corner, below other lettering which cannot be made out.
Huck fabric is pure cotton and its weave design enables it to absorb water, hence its use in towels. It is also very hard wearing. This towel was in a guest room, on a washstand with a water bowl and pitcher for personal cleaning.
