This photo was sent to Holland, and although the date on the postmark is illegible, the stamp itself would date it to between 1918 - 1921. The photographer appears to be 'F King, Victoria Road....', but the town name is hard to make out - it could be Acton or Aston. It could be that the photo was taken of a private family home, and printed by a local photographer.
There is also a 'B8' stamp on the reverse. Although UK postcodes were not adopted nationally until the fifties, Birmingham did have numbered postal districts before that time, and there are Victoria Roads in the area, notably in Aston.
The house looks relatively affluent and in the mock-Tudor style. Do you think you, or someone you know, can identify where the picture was taken?
