Walter Chatterton (1870-1955)‘s travel box possibly, because Walter, his parents and siblings moved to New Plymouth in the early to mid 1870s, so we would have been very young, so it could even be his father’s (Arthur Chatterton) or someone in his family? There is a lot of old writing on the Yellow print Page under the Reid of the box, it’s clearly from the Grimsby area in Lincolnshire, maybe from a port? It says things about the cost of taking animals onboard and things like that. I found this box in the bottom back corner of my grandfather’s museum/shed, it had spider webs and was quite dirty, so I cleaned it up a bit. If anyone knows anything at all about this box or the Chatterton family please do let me know! Walter is my great-great-grandfather. My email address is joshua.keijsers@fdmc.school.nz

A photo of Amelia (Perry) Hewitt with her family outside of her shop. Local historian "Paul Gibson" (paul-gibson.com) tells me that Amelia was listed as a beer retailer at 27 Finsbury Street in Hull, in 1913. This could be the very shop recorded in the listings. This is not my original photograph, so this is the best quality scan I have I'm afraid.
