How sure are you this is Aunt Harriet?
Well, I am beginning to wonder!  Someone has helpfully written on the back "aunt Harriet Lyles"; now I know all about the dangers of making assumptions, but unfortunately I still do sometimes make them!  As far as I know, it was my great grandma who wrote on the photos, and Harriet Lyles was her father's sister Harriet Crawshaw, who married when she was in her 30s, though she knocked a few years off her age when she did so. 
But the family were certainly not well off, and her first in-service job afer her father died was in a pub in a slum in Sheffield; she was 13 years old. 
So now I am questioning what I know about her.  She married the son of a pub landlord and lived locally in an ordinary house in an ordinary street and her husband worked in the steelworks.

I know the last reply on here was the 10th July, but this photo has just appeared today on another site I am on. It is of a pocket watch key made by a local watchmaker who used to have premises in the area.

I could see there was something on the other end of the chain in the small pocket
& thought pince nez but now you've identified the key it's obvious what's in the pocket.
Well done.
