If the gentleman's first wife died in the 1920s then this photograph , in my opinion, is him with his second wife.
Going by the decade of birth you've suggested for him - 1860s - that would make sense too. Depending on the exact year of birth in the 60s - the man in the photograph is around 70 years old.

Looby :)

It would be the second marriage then. If you gave us some names and where they lived, we could check the date of the second marriage. It looks as if it might be a honeymoon pic maybe.

Not my Grand parents but if second wife then could be

Annie Mulliner & Godfrey Furness... Derbyshire:   From this post  then dates seems around 1925-1935 for marriage.  If anyone could find the date etc that would be VERY helpful. Thank you in advance

Godfrey John Furness
Reg Year:   1868
Quarter:   Apr-May-Jun
Registration district:   Bakewell
Derbyshire
Volume:   7b
Page:   607

This looks like his birth.
Both this and the marriage from GRO via Ancestry, so no more details from this particular source.

I can see him I think in the 1901 with a wife Isabella?

What do you have already about him?  Anything?

The 1901 shows Godfrey and his first wife Isabella, aged 36 and born in Scotland, at 30 High Street Alfreton.
They have a son Godfrey G, aged 3, and a nephew and niece William E G Brown (17) and Mary E G Brown (19) both born in Wood Green, London, with them.

As the 1901 suggests, Isabella's maiden name was Brown, as also noted on their son Godfrey Gordon Furness's birth ref, which is

FURNESS, GODFREY  GORDON     BROWN 
GRO Reference: 1898  J Quarter in BELPER  Volume 07B  Page 648

Added - I can see Godfrey Senior back with his parents in the censuses, so let me know what you need to know - or what you have already!
