A British corporal and his family photographed in London
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.
