any clues to narrowing the date for these please let us know.

We believe these were shot to order by Park’s as a packaged, an advertising postcard for the the agency’s photographic services we have on record shows a house portrait and 3 images carries a note on the reverse as below:

Hi

I am doing some work on a photograph which was taken by this agency.
I think it was run by Charles Henry Park, who worked from 89 Fleet Street.
He is listed in the Newspaper Press Directory and Advertisers Guide 1917 with this entry:
“Park’s Press Photographic Agency, Limited. Topical photographs from all parts of the world and news stories will illustrations. Advertising and commercial photography a speciality. Address – 89 Fleet Street, London E. C. Telephone Holborn 2019”
