    British dumplings are cooked with flour & suet and they come in stews normally. Glad you liked the postcard, Cheers, Richard.

    American dumplings are just dough, usually cooked with chunks of chicken, or the northern part of America has corn beef , instead of chicken. your post card is in great shape for it's age.
