    Postcards from the Pain brothers

    Frank [Franklin] Pain, Roland Pain and Graham Pain were the sons of Oliver Pain & Agnes Louise Berger. (After Agnes's death Oliver married Julia Miriam Allcock). They are not my relations but my great uncle's wife was in service with them and they passed on picture postcards to her for her collection which I now own. I can supply a scan to anyone who has an interest in this family.
