A R Montgomery Postcard

The postcard above is from A R Montgomery's 'Real Photo' Series.  The local children all seem to have made an appearance, and to be happy posing for the photographer.

A R Montgomery was based at Juniper Green.  His name is printed on the back of the postcard and his initials appear on the front in white script in front of the fence (bottom, centre of the card).

This postcard has not been sent through the post.
