This postcard comes from the collection of Thomas JACKSON of Bangor, Co. Down.
Identification of the people in the photo is a work in progress - HELP!
The three men in the back are (I suspect) Unknown (could he be Thomas Jackson REED - son of Margaret JACKSON & Robert Hamilton REED?), Alan SKUCE (husband of Maud Elizabeth REED), and James USSHER (husband of Eva Oliver REED).
The women seathed are Eva Oliver USSHER (nee REED - daughter of Margaret JACKSON & Robert Hamilton REED), Elizabeth "Bessie" GILMORE nee BROWN (daughter of Elizabeth JACKSON & Thompson BROWN), I am unsure who the next two are - although I suspect they are daughters of Margaret JACKSON and one of them would be Maud Elizabeth REED, then the matriarch - Margaret McCULLAGH nee JACKSON (her first husband was REED) and on the extreme right is another daughter (I believe) and one I should recognize by now. Seated beneath, I believe is Elizabeth McCULLAGH (daughter of Margaret JACKSON).

Mother [1] got your letter today she has no time to write but we are sending you a family group instead.  You need not send this on to Brownie [2] as Mother sent her one.  We all leave on Saturday for Enniskillen [3] .  We got home from Isle of Man [4] on Tuesday.  Very severe crossing.  The wee nieces are in great form.  Erna [5] has won all hearts.  They had tea with old Mrs. Bradshaw [6] this evening.  Mother, Eva [7] , Sally [8] and Florence [9] spent yesterday evening in Drumfaldera [10] .  Glad to hear of all the good things Sophie [11] sent you.  If possible Mother will write tomorrow.  Love from all.  Yours Mattie [12] .  31.8.1911.

[4] There may have been a family “connexion” on I.O.M since there is a photo of the JACKSONs on the steps of a Bank – possibly there – prior to 1903.
