ephemera #37

Undated photo postcard by an unknown photographer, captioned “All Good Wishes”.


Although unposted, the card has a message written in difficult to decipher handwriting:

Dear Arthur & Winnie
This is one of Beals[?] first attempts at photography taken in our Back Garden. They tell me it is a good likeness except that as my eyes are […?] they do not come out […]

The rest of the writing is indecipherable.

C.G.S.
