I’ve had some excellent images submitted via Facebook by Toni Walker recently of his grandfather, William Walker and of the family, mentioned in the previous post ‘Men of the Underground’ – these are lovely images of a family at work and at play.
Toni posted these four photos last week on Facebook and has kindly given me permission to use them here, for which I thank him profusely. He notes that the tent in the third image was a Hawley bell tent, made in Walsall.
The first picture is puzzling me a bit as it’s been submitted previously, in a different scan by Kellie Carpenter, who thought it was 1890s. Toni says it’s early 1920s, and I’m inclined to agree.
These are excellent period images and I thank Toni for posting them. If you can add to the information, please do: either comment here or BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com. Cheers.
