Description

Postcard photo of wounded Belgians at the Cottage Hospital, Herne Bay, Kent, England, during World War I. The postcard is unused and not postmarked; however another postcard print of the same negative was postmarked 1916, which dates the original negative to 1914-1916. The photographer was Fred C. Palmer of Tower Studio, Herne Bay, Kent 1903-1922, who is believed to have died 1936-1939.

This print has darkened with age, but it would be inappropriate to adjust the brightness because detail would be lost.

Border

The remaining border of this image is important for researchers of this photographer. Some photographers trimmed their images more than others, and Palmer has a reputation for producing smaller postcards than other early 20th century UK photographers. He took his own photos, developed them in-house onto postcard-backed photographic paper and trimmed them himself. It is worth adding that during hand-developing the border is actively masked with equipment which both crops the picture and causes the white frame or border to appear on the paper. This frame is part of the design and is one of the reasons why the quality of Palmer's work is so interesting, and why there is an article and category for him on English Wiki. Researchers need to see exactly where the edge of the postcard is. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
