    That is an interesting story of the village. Do you know how to add the photo to the wikipedia article? (I don't!).

    I hope the father of this family survived WW1 and is taking the photo.

    No idea, but if anyone does, they're welcome to use the image.
    It was only when I scanned the postcard that I noticed the cottage name above the door. When I bought the postcard it was merely one of several of people standing in front of their homes.
