The older boy is Tom Nicholas, the woman on the right is Jane Nicholas, Tom's mother.

The other woman might be Eliza, Tom's older sister, but who's the little kid holding the whip. This is on the back of a postcard that was never sent (no stamp even though there's a place to put one). There's an original note on the front that says; "soak this card in water for one or two hours and then it wont fade. I hope you know who they are. From Mother"

I'm sorry for the condition this is in, but there's too much wrong to try and fix any more than I have unless I get a time machine. ;-)}
