postcards here II

Thelma:

Today saw a gathering of Archive Trainees (from various organisations around the UK) working on the creating series-level descriptions of the Jack Owens Postcard Collection. Discussion was had about whether some photographs were Sepia or black and white; we were all moved by a postcard correspondence of 12/11/1918 (Vichy, Hotel Ruhl) and wondered what was the true meaning of phrases such as “Have you the blues” and “My brain is dead”.
