A British soldier, his wife and five children
A family of seven
A real photographic postcard
Five children posed with their parents for this family portrait. The smallest child was moving a little when the shutter fell, despite the steadying hand of his or her soldier–father, whose cap badge is indistinct. His other hand rests on the shoulder of his morose-looking wife. ‘Cissie’ has been written in pencil on the reverse of this real photographic postcard, but neither the family’s surname nor the name of the photographer’s studio that they visited is given.
