Here are three old photos, all have something written on, so what do you think about who they actually are?
Thank goodness for Ebay this year! It’s always a thrill when I find new old photos to add to my collection and these next two beautiful Cabinet Cards are fabulous! I bought both from the same seller, now I’m thinking that the couple in this first Wedding photo is the same couple taken later after they had had two children?
What do you think of my theory? Opinions please? The gentleman above and below looks a snappy dresser, very aware of fashion and very sure of himself. The lady look to me an older version of the bride, she has quite a distinctive face. Both are taken at photographers studios in Exeter, Devon. Plus we have names on this second one below!
Left to right, written on the front on the people: Emily. Phil. George. Emm (Emily/Emma?) Unfortunately there is nothing written on the back at all. Ideas please??
This last one, again bought from Ebay, is a wonderful group old photo taken outdoors, mostly ladies in their finery, a few gents, especially all those stunning hats👒👒👒👒👒👒👒
As it’s postally used we have a date 7th February 1909, sent from St Helens, Lancashire (historically) to Neasden, north west London to ‘Dear Mother. Glad to say Sidney is doing alright so far. I had him out for a short time Friday & Saturday. I think I sent you one of these (photo) pass it on to Hetty if I did. With love to all, hoping you all better. Les (I think?) So assuming his Mother hasn’t remarried he will have the same surname as her, I’m not entirely sure of the name though, looks like Mrs Thorniley? What do you think?
Any help would be very welcome.
Till next time then…………
