Do we need to use full stop after city while addressing a letter and after name?


No.3, Mane Road,


Yours lovingly,

  • No, because it should be "London (postal code)" and below that "United Kingdom". – user3169 May 11 '17 at 20:03

This one is fairly easy, I went to Google. On the envelope after the city some use a comma and some use no punctuation.envelope

In the body of the letter: body of letter


I have never seen a full stop after the writer's name.

    It's worth noting that the first line of your 123 Elm Ave. example ends in a full stop (the othographic feature OP is specifically asking about) - but this is only because Ave is an abbreviation of Avenue. I'd also point out that many writers (particularly, older people) would put a comma at the end of each line except the last one, AND that people differ as to whether they include a comma within a line - to separate, for example, house number from road name (where again, older people are more likely to do this). – FumbleFingers Reinstate Monica May 11 '17 at 15:40
