It is some time since we last had a postcard so I am dipping back into the postcard box. This is a fine example of a magnificently uninspiring picture postcard, and I am sure that the photographer could have found a more visually pleasing image, even within the Army Service Corps barracks. The reverse is a little more interesting.
Birmingham, Tuesday. Dear G, Are you any better? If not, why not! Much love, Raymond. The postscript says: I have made a friend of a pussy here, who has been wanting to walk on the table while I am writing"
I suppose I could check out the address in Sheffield or look through census records to discover who Miss Marsh was. I could research Army Service Corps barracks in the Birmingham area. But I think I prefer to leave it as a snapshot of an unknown life, captured at a particular moment in time when G is ill and Raymond is taken up with a perambulating cat.
