PORTRAIT OF A MOTHER AND HER TWO YOUNG DAUGHTERS IN CAMBERWELL, ENGLAND

camberwell

 

This vintage real photo postcard presents a portrait of a mother and her two young daughters. Some may claim that this is actually a portrait of three sisters. I’m sticking to my interpretation, though I recognize that my hypothesis is debatable. The two young children are cute and appear unintimidated by the photographer or the photographic process. The older daughter is holding some flowers. This photo postcard was produced by Moore’s Studio which was located in Camberwell, a district in South London, England. This vintage postcard is in very good condition (see scans).
