Another excellent postcard Tony! The outfits are great and those big soldiers are truly awesome! Thanks for sharing!
It's a very unusual photo , I've never seen figures like those before.
Great postcard, very interesting figures indeed, nice to see the wee ones dressed up for the game too.
Sadly I don't know the date of the photo - 1900s ?
Nice postcard; no mystery about the figures - they are Hinchliffe 25mm, which got bigger and bigger over the years. In fact the children may be Hinch 25s too.
Ah ! scale creep ! that explains it !
I would have guessed German 70mm composite figures (Elastolin and others) but the kneeling ones might be 100mm.
Yes they are significantly bigger than 54mm.
Good find! The one on the right looks like a little hussar. On the left, a heavy cav uniform (with an infantry helmet)? Not a very festive thought, but I can't help wondering if they made it to 1919.
Yes I was wondering if they ended up in real uniforms as well.
