This is lovely! Thankyou for posting.
Was Tom's brother on the right named Jack and lived on Ormskirk Rd. Newtown.
As far as I know his name was Jack and he did live in Ormskirk Road, so Mrs Owens tells me.
Foley & Scott....a magical name. Loads of my family's studio portraits have the logo of Foley & Scott at the bottom.
One of my Mum's relatives married a Sharrock. They lived in Daniels Lane Upholland. Any connection?
Oh that was a posh wedding lovely photo
Just another bit of info on the Chapman family.John Erasmus lost his father in the 1877 explosion at Blundells colliery at the same time that my great grandfather was killed. There were 5 children left fatherless in the Chapman family, and 3 in the Bradshaw family.I had been reseaching the explosion when I realised that Lily, who is my next door neighbour had lost her great grandad at the same time that mine had died.
sorry, I should have said Digmoor, not Upholland.
fab photo fred !!!!
