This vintage real photo postcard features a handsome grey haired older man sitting on a chair with his handsome Jack Russell Terrier sitting on his lap. The well dressed man is reading a magazine. The dog is very alert and seems very interested in whatever he is looking at. The message on the reverse of the postcard indicates that it was written in 1932. I decipher the message as the following. “Much obliged by and am very sorry about the sponges. I shall have to (give coconuts?) this year and hope that by next December contact with the Greek merchants will be restored. Best wishes to you and all your family for Christmas and the New Year.” If any visitors to the Cabinet Card Gallery can improve on my interpreting the handwriting, please do not hesitate to help via a comment. The gentleman had this photograph taken at the Proctor’s Day & Electric Light Studios in Penge, England. Penge is a suburb of southeast London.  (SOLD)jack 2
