Can these photos be made any clearer please? Granpa Crosby
« on: Wednesday 06 December 17 12:22 GMT (UK) »
Are you able to make the photos attached any clearer please? A bit of a long shot I know. My mother Jean Crosby is in them both but trying to identify the others.

Thank you for trying, they are quite blurry.  We don't have many photos from Mums side & my sister just found this one.

thank you

They surely are out of focus!!    :o

Isn't it annoying when you don't have many and what you do have is not very clear!

It is such a shame.  When my Grandfather died his new wife didn't pass anything on to the rest of the family. Surprising they even had a camera.  Thank you all for trying though.

Do you have any sailors in these photos?
The two men in the back row Mum +have large white splashes ... I thought it was sun or glare or something on their collars, but then I began to wonder if they were sailor collars.

Were the two photos taken at the same time or are there a few years in between.
The people in the two photos look so much alike, and yet different.

Sorry, nothing spectacular, but I had to try.
Some people seem to pair up in the photos, so annoying that you can't see who they are.
