I was thinking of him as a young man - 25ish - when I was working on the photo but I suppose it wouldn't be unreasonable for him to be 35ish, bearing in mind that his hair seems to be receding a bit.

Mind you, having said that, the jacket looks a bit 'Three Men in a Boat' - which was published in 1889.  (I didn't know that date, I just checked  ;D)

I think the receding hair runs in the family having seen a portrait of his grandfather.

John 1842 , is my 3 x cousin 4 times removed....I, however, do not have a receding hair line ...well not yet anyway!  :D

You are most fortunate to have such a good selection of photographs of your family.

GS .... I live vicariously through my cousin in Canada who has all the photos ...I, unfortunately, have nothing except the little bit of their blood running through me  ;D ;D

he's a great cousin though and is willing to share ...with that I am VERY, VERY fortunate!

Thanks for all you have done ...John 1842 had 3 children ...he has a photo of them as well ...can I post it (when I receive it) for restoration here ...

Do you think I should post it here or a new post? I hate to appear to be 'greedy'  :-\

I wonder what they would have thought about colour pictures? Imagine them coming back and seeing Facebook/TV?movies and all the other things that have been invented since then.  ;D ;D

Put it in a new thread, Deb....some people don't revisit old ones.

The first photo has a 1920s look to it, maybe end of the war, second one I have no idea...you don't have the back do you? Or could you ask for a scan of the back?

Cheers,
