Description:

“Rotary Photo, London, E.C.” postcard, number “B. 26-3”, which shows a young lady holding a baby with a slightly older child looking on. In colour. The reverse notes that “This is a HAND-PAINTED REAL PHOTOGRAPH of a BRITISH Beauty.” This being “MISS GLADYS COOPER AND CHILDREN”. It was “Printed in Britain”.

The stamp is a standard, well coloured King George V green halfpenny stamp. it has been place in a fairly abnormal position, but is still thankfully postmarked which dates it to 1916. The card itself is adressed to “Miss. F. Blake, 10 Badles Rd, Forest Rd, Wallhampton”.

The message is faint due to it having been written in pencil and the gradual wear over the past century. Nonetheless it reads: “Dear Florrie, Thanks for card what a lovely [girl] that Natalie has. I will [?] you at [?] on monday at a quarter to eight. give my love to your Mum[?], Love [?]”
