Adelaide Australia, Symons, Thomas or Davies family Cardiff.
« on: Sunday 25 April 21 08:28 BST (UK) »
Please can someone date this photo for me. It is from my maternal grandparents collection and is most likely one of the Thomas/Davies/Symons family from Cardiff. Lots of the men went to sea. I have info about James Henry Thomas b 1851 going to Australia. He was a ships captain and died in Hong Kong in 1900. But he was not the only sailor in the family.
Thanks very much for any ideas.

Hi Louise...This looks like it is an 1890s Photo:

Bond & Co. were listed as photographers, 91 Rundle Street, Adelaide, in directories from 1889 to
1903, and as ĎBond & Co., Crown Studiosí from 1904 to 1909.

Thank you very much Carol, thatís brilliant. Looks possible it may be my James Thomas then, although Iím hopeless at estimating age too. I guess I will never know for sure unless someone else has a photo of the same man.
