About this object

Used postcard featuring the photo of an unidentified Wellington cricket side from 1922.

This is the message on the back:
<i>22/5/22, Wgton;
Dear Doris,
Received your P.C. of your new car & Dad & thanks for same. I think your Dad owes me a letter. I would not be sure. I am sending you a P.C. of our cricket team. I suppose you won't have any difficulty in finding your ugly uncle. & ask your Dad to send the name of the cemetary & no of Uncle Jack's grave as I have a mate living over there who will look after it a bit & write and ask him to do so. Well we are starting to feel the launch of winter here. Now this is all [indecipherable]. Hoping all at home are quite well. I remain Uncle Arthur.
I expect to hear from you soon & don't forget that ink and paper are now [the rest has been cut off].</i>
