This is such a wonderful picture, I hope we can figure out the who and where of it. The reverse gives us some clues:

Dear S. I hope A and John are better and all the rest well. With
best love to all
In the England & Wales, National Probate Calendar (Index of Wills and Administrations), 1861-1941 I found a record forSarah Jane Harvey, wife of George James William Harvey, who died in 1919 and lived at 124 High Street. Could "S" be Sarah Jane. I think the possibility is good.
In the 1901 Census, Sarah and her husband, George, a green grocer, are living in Margate on St. John's Road. Sarah was born about 1877 in Bacton, Herefordshire. They have two children: Violet, b. 1899 and George, 1901.
While I could not find any more information in the records about this family, I did find an Ancestry tree that had Sarah and Geo. in it. According to the information provided there, the Harveys had four other children: Jessie Olive, b. 1902, Florence, b. 1905, Agnes Rose, b. 1907 and John, b. 1910.
All the information contained in the note from "Mother" would fit with what we know of the family. Perhaps John and Agnes had been ill at the time.
So who is featured in the photograph? I would guess "Mother" is probably Sarah's mother, since the letter seems to be mailed from Hereford, but who is the young girl? If a marriage record or some other document could be found that lists Sarah's maiden name, that might help us figure out who "Mother" was and where she was living in 1911.
It's a good start, though. Any thoughts?
