R. SINCLAIR & SONS CANTERBURY
Photo courtesy of the CORK family, if you have any idea of where this building is/was please
As the family would love to know
A gatherings at the Cathedral....was this day a Special Event? As Tricia pointed out, the picture shows mostly women and children, she suggested possibly a Mothers Union Service.
What looks to be a three legged race, likely on the cricket grounds (with the score board in the background). Some of the contestants are dressed up and maybe part of the Old Stagers?
The postcard was sent August 19th, 1907, to a Miss Todd, East Cliffe, Dover from Canterbury
Unlikely that this is St. Lawrence cricket ground because of the hills in the background
A view of the buildings in the background, possibly barracks? or row houses?
A photo postcard with a note on the back of "13 Nunnery Road, Canterbury?" The photo on the right is 12 Cherry Garden Road, but has the same construction feel as the house in the old photo.
It has been confirmed that this is NOT 13 Nunnery Road, but possibly was in Canterbury somewhere. (Thanks to Tricia for this)
Nunnery Fields...... She thinks this could be Norman Road which is off Nunnery Fields, various family of hers also lived in Caledon Terrace and Lansdowne so she is sure it is not in those. (Thanks to Peggy & Sandra for this)
Canterbury Group? By the May Pole. In the front is Francis-Bennett-Goldney wearing the Mayors chain
The Canterbury Maypoles group pics......... we both think this must be around c.1905 to 1912, working on fashions shown but, she does not recognise the place. (Thanks to Peggy & Sandra for this)
A photo of a parade with a Mayor....is this Canterbury? (written on reverse "Mayor's Sunday" Nov: 13th: 1910)
It is confirmed that this is not Deal nor Dover or Sandwich
"I've had a reply and it confirms what I've sent you already. He doesn't recognise the mayor and says that the uniform of the Town Sergeant is not that of Sandwich. The mayor of Deal wears black robes too, but Mr Wanostrocht reminds me that early photographers used orthochromatic negatives which were not sensitive to red light and so rendered red as black. So we cant assume that the robes are black - they might be red. On the high res picture you sent I think I can make out the writing above S Jordan. I believe it says "Beers & Stout" which would mean that the establishment was a public house or Inn (less likely a hotel). If you could find a pub run by S Jordan (It might be R or E S Jordan) then you would confirm the town or city." Thanks to Ray for this great information
Mayoral Parade........ she thinks the Mayor looks very naval with his beard, appears to be wearing an Admiral's hat, she says definitely not Canterbury and thinks it might be Whitstable. As a child she was often taken to Herne Bay and Whitstable on days outl (Thanks to Peggy & Sandra for this)
SOLVED thanks to a visitor to the site - this is 55 Crow Hill Road, Margate Kent
Unknown building in Canterbury....I think the writing above the door on the right says "Kelise Rose" or "Kelvin House"?
The back of the postcard reads " c/o Mrs Carter J. V., C. G. Road* Canterbury. Wednesday. What do you think of the children? Ruby comes out well, but Eric is dreadful. That's all our luggage outside and the bath chair. Never had that from Marquise yet. I said it wrong of her? I wish ..? write about it. Am going on Saturday. R. Posted Sept 25, 1907, from Canterbury to Miss Evans Smith c/o Mrs. Edwards Sutton Hall Thirsk, Yorkshire.
*I thought this might have been Cherry Garden Road or Coldharbour Garden
