I am looking for Walter North b.1928 Whitby. His Mothers maiden name was Wisker.
Can anyone tell me where they lived please Whitby area and Hull.

Thank you.

Thanks Everyone for your input,

I will take Jim's view as to the date then as that is where my initial thought's were in the mid 1920's.
Thank you all for participating.

All the Best for 2019  :)

I have been viewing pictures of old bicycles from the 1920s, the bicycle does not appear light weight to me, the rear mud guard seems to be of that period.

can anyone give a definitive date please.

All the best :)


Thanks everyone,
My house was built in 1923 and has similar air vents as the house shown and also
some below the damp course. It is single brick with pebble dash on side and backwalls as in the photo.
I think the photograph would have been taken in Wrangle, Old Leake or Leverton area in Lincolnshire.

So what date are we going with?   

Its been very interesting reading your knowledgeable thoughts.

Merry Christmas to you All. :)

Thank you Viktoria,

The only person this could be is my Great Grand Father who died in 1927 aged 72, all the other males in the family are accounted for.

Merry Christmas.

Thank you for you thoughts.

Thanks Handypandy,

I agree withwhat you are saying, but maybe the photograph was taken by one of those guy's who went round on his bicycle taking photo's, he would have had a decent camera would'nt he?



Thanks for enlargement McGroger, can see bicycle wheel in background with maybe a dynamo or light attached?

Gadget,  It may well be a Great Grandparent who died in 1927, so I am hoping that this photo may have been taken pre that year. This is a copy of the photo and I am trying to find out if there are any identifying marks on the back but sender said they don't remember seeing any but will check.

Can anyone date this photograph please.

Can anyone give a rough idea of the date it was taken going by the mans suit, no names or marks on back of the photo.

Thank you.
