'Not absent from our hearts.' | The Army Children Archive
A British sentimental postcard.
Fred Spurgin was the artist who created the touching scene on the front of this postcard, in which a mother and her two small children appear to be thinking of an absent soldier – her husband and their father. The legend beneath reads ‘Not absent from our Hearts.’. The text printed on the reverse of the postcard includes the following lines: ‘“Art and Humour” Publishing Co., 27, Chancery Lane, London, W.C. / The “A & H” “Reflexion” Series. No. 171. British Manufacture.’
