A British corporal and his family photographed in London
A real photographic postcard
The printed details on the reverse of this real photographic postcard tell us that the family pictured on the front visited ‘The Ideal Studios, 514-516 Oxford St., W. [London]’ in order to be photographed. Seated in a chair, a young mother supports a baby on her lap. Standing to the right is the army child’s father. The two stripes on his left sleeve tell us that he is a corporal, and the badge above them signifies that he is a Royal Army Medical Corps (RAMC) medical orderly.
