The first photographs were only about from around 1825 . . . the clothes have a distinctly late Victorian / Edwardian look about them... the date is more likely to be 1890 - 1910 ish. Lovely photograph though . . . is Harvey House on Gathurst Road?
It now forms part of John Rigby school, Ian.
apologies should have read 1900 photographs relate to my great aunts service around that time. 1890 - 1910 is spot on.
Ah! thought it was that one! Spent some time there working with staff from John Rigby - is it still there? Don't remember seeing it as I passed . . .or is it the gate house that has gone . . . or am I just imagining it all? lol!
Superb pic Jack and don't worry about the date! :)
Although I have had this photograph for many years I have never spotted the gentleman in the lower ground floor window. Does he still walk the corridors of John Rigby ?
