Photo was taken probably around 1905-1912. No photographers name and a non standard size picture mounted on Dk Green card, could be early roll film This picture was probably taken on an early roll film camera although still mounted on plain card. The style of dress could be early 1900's

This early CdV with no photographers name is from the 1860's. It has a penciled note on the back - Rev Greer, Cheese Lane,Wellingborough but no details can be found regarding him. There maybe a link to the Jinks family as in WAY007 & 008 This fine picture was taken by T Miller of Midland Road between 1874 and 1885. Can anybody put a name to him?

Can you help identify these ladies? They are believed to be members of the Bloodsworth line and as can be seen the photos were by photographers in the Stamford and Grantham area. The photos are Card de Visite and date from the 1860's - 1870's


These three photographs were recently passed to the Society in an effect to identify them. The wedding photographs were taken by a Northampton photographer around 1940/42 as the picture with the young girl is dated 1944.  If anyone can help, please email as above


This picture is an enlargement of an original which is less than 30mm high.  It may have been cut from a larger group photograph.  It was kept in a wallet by the contributors deceased uncle.  It was said that it was a picture of his grandfather.  There are well recognised photographs of both his grandfathers and they are nothing like this image.  It is expected that it was a great grandfather and the most likely candidate is Henry Atkins or Adkins (1821-1893) who, at the 1890 Northamptonshire Agricultural Show, was awarded £4 as the labourer with the longest time in the same service. He had worked 52 years for Col. G.R. Fitzroy, Grafton Regis. Can anyone confirm that this man is Henry Atkins or that he is recognised as a Grafton Regis villager who appears in any old Grafton photographs?

Please send any info to the email above
