Great Aunt Enid's Photo Stash 1

A family of glum Edwardians take tea in the garden.

Great Aunt Enid- my maternal grandfather's sister- kept meticulous records. I could tell you who everyone in this picture is, but most of them are just names to me. Enid is the particularly glum person sitting in the foreground, like Patience on a monument, gazing to the right. My grandfather is the boy standing to the right with his hand on the upright of the deck chair.

The setting is the garden of  house called Brightlands,  in Croydon. The time is Summer 1904.
