Good evening,

Purely as matter of interest the picture is printed the wrong way round, unless postmen button up ladies fashion.
Are we able to turn it?

Good evening,

The older gent in the middle just jumped out of the page, lighter suit, and obvious sraight away that it was wrong way round. Have searched every South Molton site I can find with photos including Frith but no luck with anything resembling that house.

Jim, if by chance it's not UK what would be the time line for those shirts? I'm thinking colonial.

If it is colonial then I'd bank on it not being Australia - trees are wrong and building doesn't seem right either.   :-\

 - funny - first thing I thought when I saw those hats was USA - shakoes are they called?    (or French Gendarmes!!)   Not quite tall enough though are they?

Hi Guys

Thanks for your thoughts ...It was sent to my cousin froma woman who runs the South Molton site where the Post Office photos where found.

GH lived at his home named "The Retreat", South Molton in 1911 ...I have tried to find an image of it but have had no luck!  I should try to see if there was a street address.

Good evening,

Could I suggest re-posting this on the Devon site. See if any one in South Molton picks it up.
