Gadget,

It does look similar, but don't you think the distance from the ground to the top of the open french window [?] is much shorter in my photo?

You would expect to see part of the windows either side of the door, they are not on your photo.

Stourhead is a very large property - it might be worth Googling some of the images. There are many. I looked at a few but have other things on!

The door feature seemed distinctive. It could have been replicated on another part of the property.

Steve

Do you have any other photos of your grandfather and grt grandfather?

Also, where were they working before Stourhead?  Was Edmund already at Stourhead by the time he sent the postcard?

This is the only other photo I have of my great grandfather Edmund Barlow. He was in the Devonshires Jan 1888 to Jan 1896, then recalled for South Africa Oct 1899 to Jan 1901.

He was awarded Good Conduct pay Mar 1893 and forfeited it Sep 1893 - does that tie in with the chevron and date the photo?

He was at 3 St Johns View, Newbury in 1911 and joined the National Reserve in Sep 1914 at Newbury. He was discharged for misconduct in April 1915.

I have no other evidence about Stourhead expect the photo (?) and postcard.

Had a thought!

It might be worth you sending the picture to Stourhed to find out if they recognise it.

The e-mail address is on this link:

Worth a try.

I think there's enough similarity to say that the man on the right front is your grt grandfather.

And this is my grandfather Bert (born Nov 1901), who wrote the postcard home [see Wilts Board] No date but late 1920's?

He was very tall for the period - at least 6 feet - and he had his father's ears.

Now I never thought my grandfather was in the staff photo - but that young chap right at the back is tall and has ears aplenty. I was very excited but, looking closer, the set of the mouth looks different.

Gadget - thanks for the link. I thought of contacting them years ago, but never got around to it. They certainly have a lot more online than when I looked before.
