I have a CdV album containing quite a few cartes-de-visite and Cabinet cards dating from about 1880. They were mostly taken around the Gainsborough, Hull, Ripon, Rugby,Leeds,Scarborough,Plymouth areas and one from Salt Lake City in USA.There are a couple of Vicars/Priests that might help identification. One picture is of John and Annie Ellis with children Jack and Millie. Also another of Alice Gray nee Allen, Uncle Charles,Little Ethel, Arnold and Lillie.The writing on the reverse of the Vicar taken by Beales is difficult to read but looks like 'Presented to The Bazaar by Beales Bros' .
I am trying to get them back to the family rather than a collector and will include the original album which has 8.
full page studies of stately homes for a cabinet photo.
I will try to get a friend to research the family.Please. look at the pictures which may help and some are named.
