Description(Color) Four poem stanzas written as doses I-IV, in accordance with the poem's subtitle, "A Dose of Optimism." The red, white, and blue medicine bottle reads "Optimism The Does to be Taken as Required" and a British Flag is pinned into the cork stopper. A message on the back informs potential buyers of the card to obtain them directly from the author, Jule Critten at her residence. 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.
