Old Folks at Home
Description(Black and White) This postcard is a soldier's poem ("verse-letter") to his mother and father with an image of a family around a fireplace. The last line reads "From Kinmel Park" which is probably where this card was sold. The bottom right corner reads "Merry and Bright" but there is no indication what this references. This card is uninscribed and unposted.
This collection previously belonged to Dominic Hibberd, an English biographer most noted for the biographies of Wilfred Owen and Harold Monro, World War I poets. He collected these postcards for research purposes.
