Hello, would some kind soul be able to fix up this photo of my late dad?

If any of you are on Facebook there is a Runcorn local history group on there.

"Parents:  Thomas and Arthur (crossed out) Martha"

Maybe that's where the old saying comes from "don't know whether I'm Arthur or Martha" !

I'd never heard that saying until I moved to Australia along with many others lol :D

I've almost gotten up the nerve to go back in  :o

Was this a worldwide thing or just in the UK?

I have a marriage in 1889 in the above church, I've been on Genuki and it's not really clear but I think it may be called St Tegai's?  Is that correct?

I know it's a bit of a shock if you have never seen them before but...that was the norm Victorian Times.

Yes we certainly live in different times and what to us is morbid or creepy was normal to them, just as poor people in workhouses on a treadmill or children who stole were whipped or sent to prison was normal to them.

Thank God we live in more enlightened times though I do think the world has gone a bit too soft and PC. 

I will work up the nerve to look at more photo's because it really is very interesting.

I'm so glad there was no drama at such a sad time.

I do apologise...I should have added a warning but failed to do so...sorry if you were upset by it..  :-\

No worries Carol I'll survive lol  :D, but they were just sooo creepy, I might have another look at more links now I know what to expect.
