Margaret Ann Bell, Station Hotel, Ebchester

Would anyone care to date this picture which I can narrow down a bit!  It has to be after 1902 but before 1948 when the pub burned down.  Many thanks

It looks 1920s.

Which is Mary Ann Bell - is it the one on the right?  I see you asked or info about her on another thread re Ebchester.

PS - if  possible, can you scan at the largest resolution - it might show up her ring finger. I note that you didn't know if she was married.

Hello Gadget,

I have tried that!  I couldn't be sure if there is a ring there or not and I can't get a better resolution picture.  The person who sent me the picture said she was the one dressed in black.  I have been told that she was there in the early part of the century and that she might be the daughter or daughter in law of a previous landlord.  Another thinks it was just before the pub burned down making it 1948 but North Eastern Breweries merged with Vaux in 1927 so that sign would probably be gone soon after that.
