|Description||Postcard of Chiseldon School, near Swindon, Wiltshire, England, showing a group of school children dressed for May Day celebrations. It is one of a set of seven postcards from the 1930s, showing children from the same school on May Day. There is a May Queen; also Brownies, Cubs, Scouts and Girl Guides.
The photographer was Fred C. Palmer of Tower Studio, Herne Bay, Kent ca.1905-1920, and of 6 Cromwell Street, Swindon ca.1920-1936. He is believed to have died 1936-1939.
This print has darkened with age, but it would be inappropriate to adjust the brightness because detail, e.g. on white dresses, would be lost.
BorderThe 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.
