I have in my possession a postcard that shows an colorised black-and-white image supposedly of my father (born 1927) and an unidentified girl.
I'm pretty certain this wasn't his usual garb at the time (sometime in the 30s?) so am looking (1) to estimate of the ages of the individuals shown (or the date of the photograph) (2) to understand where and why the picture might have been taken and made into a postcard (3) to identify the photographer (long shot). The post card was never sent and there is no identifying material on the back other than a stamp box:
which this website suggests was used on postcards made by K Ltd between 1918 and 1936 -- perhaps this is the manufacturer of pre-printed photographic paper (Kodak Ltd?)
