This is one of many postcards my Grandad collected while he was serving in the British Army in World War I as an officer’s batman.
It was printed in the ‘United Kingdom’ in a series titled ‘Wide – Wide – World’ by Raphael Tuck & Sons. The artist was J Fulleylove (1845 – 1908). On the back is a narration that reads:
Two Women Grinding at a Handmill. Palestine in some respects cannot be said to have progressed. Here we see the picture of two women grinding corn with the simple apparatus as mentioned by our Lord nineteen hundred years ago; ‘Two women shall be grinding at the mill: one shall be taken and the other left’.
