Technical Help / Re: Computer numpty needs help
« on: Saturday 12 September 20 15:24 BST (UK)  »
Ive never run Chrome but briefly reading about it, running slow seems a common complaint. It likes to use up memory and thus slows things down.

Most people suggest opening 'task manager' that will give you an idea of whats going on.  It will tell you what physical memory is available.  The more the better, the less there is things will slow down.

Maybe check that out and check the given figure against the specification for your laptop.  Also check the memory when chrome is running and also when its not.  Then perhaps give your daughter the figures and ask her how to rectify it. 

It could be you will have to disable certain plug-ins eg.  java or Flash. but she should be able to help you with that.

To open up 'task manager' have a look at this site. https://www.lifewire.com/google-chrome-task-manager-4103619.  just follow the instructions given.

On the following site http://freepages.rootsweb.com/~victorianphotographs/history/search/bristolphotographers.htm

Theres two references to,  Butler, James M (Late A & G Taylor) 1898 Only entry, Baldwin Street Bristol.

Taylor, A & G
1879 , 1 Baldwin Street
1907 Last entry 58 Baldwin Street

So I guess the photo will be between those two dates.

Its possible that Horace or his surviving family member/s donated his negatives etc to the local archive and records office, which would be Worcester I suppose.

May or may not be sisters but they seem to have the same hairdresser!

Lancashire / Re: Schools in Southport

Here is a list of schools in the Sefton area which Southport now comes under.  They were probably much the same schools as in the 60-80s give or take one or two.

Check this site out, I haven't looked right through it but there are images of the Fishpools along with other early images, interesting read.
