This postcard was produced by Sydney Hall Photographer & Picture Framer, Forest House, Edwinstowe. The reverse side of the card reveals it has a Mansfield post mark and was posted in 1928.
The photograph is taken in the grounds of Forest Town Institute, the Avenue houses can be seen in the back gound.
Mrs Boden writes to her son that it is a photo of his dad with the haulage hands [from Mansfield Colliery]. The Boden’s were I believe, a Forest Town Family, maybe someone knows more about them?
What is a mystery to me is the game with the Daily Mail ball, how was it played? was it an annual event? how was it instigated by the Daily Mail? Can anyone help with more information please.
