John Couch (?or Couth)
More found photos
Here is an old photo which came with information on the reverse. Is he
one of your relatives?
This young man looks as though he is wearing a railwayman's
uniform? He doesn't look especially well off . I wonder why he
had it taken? Perhaps for a distant sweetheart? I think the
name is COUCH although it could be COUTH?
DATE: Given as 1873.
- Photographer: There is a John Brett listed in Balls Pond Road
for 1868-72 on Michael Pritchard's Directory
of London Photographers, 1841-1908. Perhaps they moved there from
Stoke Newington Road?
- Card: Carte de Visite. A full length portrait, square corners etc
confirms an early date and Roger Vaughan's dating
CDV photographs from the designs on the back seems to agree with a
date in the 1870s.
- Fashion: Not really relevant here as he appears to be
in some sort of uniform.
