An Edwardian Christmas Day Roach

Bought recently an original postcard sent on December 25th in the year 1908 to J.L. Barnes Esq. the President of Clare & District Angling Society bearing the photograph of a roach next to a card recording it's capture, 'Clare & District Angling Society - Taken in the river Stour by Mr. Thomas Clark.  Dec 6th 1908 Roach.  Weight 1lb 9oz.'   On the back of the card the sender who one assumes might be Mr. Clark has written 'With best wishes for Xmas.  From a Member.'
