A recent lovely old photograph find was of two girls (possibly sisters) posted on 18th April 1913 from someone living at 20 Sutton Court Road in Plaistow in Essex – could I find any more information?

Another lovely old wedding photograph find had some clues written on back of the postcard as below – With all good wishes for a Bright and Merry Xmas and a Prosperous New Year – Mr and Mrs A E PANTER. The photograph was taken by Perrott & Lacey photographers in Rushden in Northamptonshire – so could I find a Mr and Mrs A E PANTER in that area to link to the photograph? I started by looking at marriage registrations online and found quite a few A E PANTER’s, but the most likely match seemed to be the marriage of Alfred E PANTER and Gladys M ROBINSON in the October quarter of 1924 in the ..read more

A lovely old wedding photograph find over the weekend at a postcard fair in London, as below, had the surnames BUNCHER, WILEMAN and NUTTING written on the back, but with no location, so could I discover anything about these families.

I then found Walter and Ethel BUNCHER on the 1911 census, as below, living at 26 Clifton Road in Aylestone Park in Leicester ..read more
