Posset has changed a lot in recent years, still a good place to live though. Since moving to an apartment on the Marina I've been researching the history of the docks and town and collecting old photos - all put together in a .pdf file; you're welcome to a copy.
Thanks to all for your work on the photo.

Hi KG, I'm the original poster. I live in Portishead and collect old photos of the town. Tomorrow I was intending to post the restored photo, along with my photo of how the wall looks now on the Portishead Past Facebook page - 'past & present'.
Regards, Jeff

Thanks so much for finding this, really helpful.

Would it be possible to find the surname for George's mother, Mary, b. abt 1847. (his father - George William Brown, b. abt. 1849 in Dorking, Surrey.)?

His siblings were: Alfred (1874), Charles (1879), Thomas (1880), Jenny (1885), Frederick (1888), Harry (1892)

1871 census - George (a carpenter) and Mary Brown, Borough Road, St Peter, Surrey.

I'm trying to find a marriage record for George Brown and Annie Francis/Frances (surname unknown). Please can you help?

George Brown (b. 25/3/1876 in Norbiton, London) is listed in the 1891 census at 551 Kings Road, Fulham, London with his parents & 5 siblings.

In 1897 George married Annie Francis (surname not found) who was born in London abt. 1876.

George and Annie had at least 3 children:

George William Brown (18991963)
Ellen Rose (or Nellie) Brown (1901?)
Alfred Charles Brown (1905?)

The 1901 census records George and Annie living at 7 Sotheron Road, Fulham, London and in 1911 at 121 Bath Road, Knowle, Bristol.
