The young David Evans has been busy with lots of research projects of late, and one in particular seems like a good story to run in the mid-Christmas lull – so can you help identify these mystery photos, please?
These two images were supplied by a local family following the passing of their owner, and nobody seems to have any clue who the child and lady featured are.
If you can help, please do comment here or mail me – BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com.
Cheers to David for the legwork here, Bill Mayo for his wise eye and the family concerned for their generous donation.
This sweet little photo measure 4 inches by 2½ inches. IN conversation with our wonderful local historian Bill Mayo I understand that Caddick’s photo studio was on Brownhills High Street, opposite present day Aldi store
But the ‘American Studio’ had us both baffled.
This second photo measures 5½ inches by 3½ inches and the details are fascinating. What is the dress/ uniform? What breed of dog is the good lady holding?
The reverse of the photo has, praise the Lord, some dating information:
There was no stamp attached, suggesting that the photo was given. But who was Emily?
My thanks are extended to the local Brownhills family who have very kindly given these images.
