Long-shot; date photo of young man please, WRY probably Stocksbridge
« on: Monday 14 January 19 14:53 GMT (UK) »
This photo is among my family photos but I have no idea who or when.  I think he looks about 16 years old. 
He's wearing a ring - is this unusual? 
Trouser turn-ups are very large
There's a badge of some description on his jacket but even scanning at high resolution doesn't make it any clearer.  I'll post the close-up in the second post.

Higher resolution scan of the badge, not sure if someone will recognise it.  Like I say, a bit of a long shot!

His suit style was popular from just before ww1 & into the early 1920's.
The collar pin would put it closer to 1920.

The shape of the badge looks a bit like a Fire Brigade badge.

Thanks jim1, I noticed the pin on the collar but couldn't work out what it was - what purpose did it serve?

Trishanne, well after a lot of debate we think this photo could possibly be my grandad, born 1906, or one of his brothers (born 1904, 1909).  Their father was in the fire brigade, so it's certainly a possibility.

I am attaching another photo, of my grandad (b.1906)... can anyone see a resemblance?

I think it could be the same young man taken a couple of years later. Maybe age around  14 in the first one and 16ish in the second one.

I agree with Carol. The only differences in the features are a change of hairstyle and a couple of years maturity (unless one of the other boys bore a strong resemblance to your grandad).

Don't agree I'm afraid. Mouth & nose are different. Nose is narrower also eyes are deeper set in 3. Mouth is fuller in 3.
