Margaret ?A. H. SHERRET/SKERRET?
More found photos
Here is an old photo which came with information on the reverse. Is
one of your relatives?
Aged 9 years
I had trouble reading the name on this card. I
wondered about HEWIT, THOMAS, SLOANE? And others have
suggested HARNET or THOMSET. Lizzie, a
kind contact at Cheshire Roots Chat has suggested SHERRET and
as there are several Margaret SHERRET/SHERRAT/SKERRETs born in
the relevant years in the Sale area I suspect she is probably one
She looks well wrapped up in a big new coat which has
been bought to last (or handed down from someone much
bigger). And is that a fur or
fur-trimmed bonnet? But somehow she doesn't look
as though she is from a well off family even though her
clothes are new (compare her with this photo of
a young girl in 1879 from Roger Vaughan's website).
Perhaps she was about to be sent off somewhere and this
picture was taken as a memento.
DATE: Given as 1877.
- Photographer: J. Ingham, Artist &
Photographer, 65 School Road, Sale, Near
- Card: Carte de Visite with a
simple back design.
- Fashion: Hard to tell but she appears
dressed for work rather than play.
