A very grubby photo of Eltham Hutments WW1
« on: Friday 08 February 19 14:51 GMT (UK) »
Hi, May I ask if someone would delete the people in the attached photo and give it a clean up please.
The photo was in a bundle given to me of family members but there was no clue to who the lady and child are.
Many Thanks, Jim

Hi.  Do u know what were the huts used for before houses. Reason I am asking is that my great granny and grandpa married in Eltham in 1918 and I think there was an army Base down there during Ww1.

They do look like army huts until you see they were actually quite small.  There's a great photo of the hut 'village' on this website.

Hi Japeflakes, Trishanne and John - 76.
Thank You all for your excellent work in cleaning this one photo and deleting the people from it.
I wanted to use (and now can do so) the photo in a story I am writing about one of my ancestors who did lived in one of the Huts during/after WW1.
Thank You All again, Jim
