STOYLE & LEE Carpenters & Builders US lookup
« on: Wednesday 01 September 10 19:51 BST (UK) »
Hi,
I'm seeking the location of a business (c1910) called STOYLE & LEE. They were: "Carpenters & Builders". They undertook Jobbing Work and Alterations and also repaired furniture
The only further info I can offer is the business was housed in a two storey wooden shed behind a brick built two storey detached house on a tree lined avenue in a residential area.
Either STOYLE or LEE  had the first name of TED and was married(?) with a small child c1910

Is the small child in the photo?  If so, can you determine if it was a boy or a girl?  If it isn't against any copyright regulations, can you add the photo, so we may get a better look?

Is there some indication that the photo was taken in the states?  Could it possibly have been taken in Canada, or in the UK?

Hi Lisa,
Thanks for your reply.
The photo postcard has an AZO stamp box with corner upright tri-angles which suggests to me it USA. Judging by the style of house this supports my theory. The child is looking out of an upstairs window with possibly it's mother alongside but could be an older child. The baby looks male.
I'd add a photo but when I expand the Attach a photo link I don't get the attach facility! Am I doing something wrong? (I am a new boy)!!

I'm not sure how to add photos (my son helped me the last time).  Hopefully, someone will advise.

I'm not sure what AZO is?  ???

I found an example of AZO.  You learn something new everyday.  ;)

I think the lookup requests area doesn't allow for photos.  I'll try moving the thread.
