Dad & Les, A splendid day on Southend-on-sea
Dad (Richard James)Les Field. A photo kept by my Grandmother. Who are they?
This photo was another in a small collection kept by my Grandmother Gladys James born 1900 Hackney.
After immigrating to Australia in 1923 - 24 from London my Grandparents severed almost all contact from their English families after a family disagreement regarding their marriage that took place in Hackney 1922. A small amount of photo's where kept by my Grandmother which obviosouly meant they were special people in her life, some where sent to her from her new stepsister Maude who had written to Gladys to inform her of family news, this possibly being around the early 1950's. Most of the photo's have no inscriptions on the backs, and some with just first names, none with dates. I think one of these men in this photo is my Grandmothers father Richard James born 1873, I am unsure to which one though, Do you reconise anyone here?
