That's a great vignette. I was sure it was a painting.

Long gone are the days when reading mail was an entertaining interlude methinks.

It's striking, isn't it.

The formality of a vignette, with Slouch Hat (Light Horse?) as narrative element, the fluttering pages, but a sense of spontanaiety as well.

Reading mail in Wartime was heavier entertainment I guess...

I doubt tht reading mail on verandah en famille is a rare event these days.
Maybe reading email over the shoulder of a laptop is close?

I doubt that reading mail on verandah en famille is a common event these days...

so much for spontaneity...
