In the process of scanning in my old family photographs from my grandfather’s albums, there were the odd one or two photographs of people where we had no idea who they were. There were no helpful clues on the back, and there are ones we just don’t know if they are relatives or just friends of the family.
There were a couple that I managed to get sorted out and put names to or at the very least have a general understanding that they were family friends rather than relatives, but here are the ones we know nothing about.
This photograph was kept along with ones relating to my great grandfather Albert Hallas and his parents and sister Sarah. Initially I thought it was his mother but another family member advised that another photograph I had was actually his mother. This photograph would have probably been taken around the 1910s or 1920s. It was originally cut into an oval shape and had been in a frame – this is a restored version, so had perhaps been more likely to be a relative than a friend if it had been in a frame.
I’ve posted this photograph before in my Street Photography post – I know it was taken in Jersey in the 1930s but the people are unfamiliar.
Do you have any odd photos that you wish you knew who the subjects were? Have you got any clues on the back? Any photographers details to narrow down the timeframe and area?
