That Group photo is an odd one. Could be a post mortem photo for the youngest child. Very strange position he is in. Victorians were masters of the art of posing the dead. We will never know.

Default Gowenlock Photographer Alnwick

Here's a new one, nearly overlooked in a pile of various photos. Gowenlock Alnwick. Totally blank reverse, small impressed name to front.
Crudely cut down to fit a photo frame by someone.

Henry Scott Gowenlock, Photographer, aged 29 and his assistant, Florence Lister, aged 26, are both lodging in Alnwick on census night 1911. They are in the premises of Fanny Thompson, widow, aged 50, at 8 Bondgate Within.


[edit- looking at the death index Gowenlock died in the same quarter as the 1911 census!]


[edit 2. He's a draper's assistant in 1901. His parents ran the Globe Inn in Alnwick at this time.]

Rather an unusual surname, my mother was "in service" in the late 1920's to a Mrs Gowenlock who had Castlegate House in Warkworth. That is the house at the top of Castle Street where you go towards the castle. She took in boarders and at the time my mother was there Major Vernon Merivale was a resident, he was involved at Hauxley Colliery which was then in it's infancy.

There are a few WW1 medal index cards for Northumberland Fusilier Gowenlocks, but none on the Absent voter lists. Possibly Alnwick or Warkworth men discharged before early 1918? Some of those lost local combatants no one knows about.

Default J. Bell Photographer Bedlington

This one I had two identical copies of. Sold one on ebay; bought by someone in France?

Blank reverse, front marked J. Bell .... Bedlington
A leek show, old bottle aficionados might notice the two tone stone ginger beers as vases on the table.







Last edited by Coquet; 14-08-2016 at 03:34 PM. Reason: Leak show?? that's held in the Blue Bell gents toilets.

Thanks for this Mike, I couldn't find anything.

Any idea how deep the water is at the weir opposite the Stanners?

It is tidal there, from walkable across the old weir (knee deep) to two to three feet at a high tide. Obviously any significant rain and it can be deep, fast flowing and lethal
