Scope and content
This item is a black and white photographic print on a postcard of Dulcie Randall in a cart with her mother, Mary Randall, and dog, "Daphne". The cart is being pulled by a horse, "Dobbin". Dulcie's father, Dr. Elisha Ambrose Randall, is standing beside the cart in military uniform. The photograph was taken at "Midhurst", the family's estate in Edenbridge, Kent, England during World War I. It was removed from a memory book that contained items compiled for Dulcie by her parents and other caretakers while they lived in England during World War I.
This item is in good condition.

A letter written by Dulcie's parent beside the postcard in the memory book reads:
"Dear Dulcie, chiefly for your sake I am taking a house in the country - 'Midhurst' is not a large house but very pretty - almost covered with ivy and climbing roses and honeysuckle and white clematis. There are nice hedges all about our three & a half acres of land and very fine old oak trees in the little meadow at the rear of the house. Here you can run free of boarding house restraint - and also we shall be able to provide for you those good things which, on account of war, conditions are not to be had at shops in town - milk, butter, potatoes, etc., because here we will keep a cow, and have a large garden and Daddy will enjoy the diversion of coming here weekends after his work at the hospital. The pony too will a great delight to your child-heart - 'Dobbin' his name and many miles of sweet English country we will explore together, you & I and 'Daf'! We must get some picture portraits of this place for you so that you may have a clear memory of your life here."
