This week's Sepia Saturday theme image shows two little girls; I'm almost on theme with a girl and boy who are more than likely sister and brother.
It's another 'orphan' photograph without name, date, place or photographer's details. I'd love to know who they were and when the photograph was taken. Doesn't that serious little boy in his tweed suit just make your heart melt?
More heart-melting images over at Sepia Saturday.

One of the many seaside street photographers, Jacksons specialised in taking walking photographs (known as walkies) as well as groups of people on charabancs and pleasure steamers. Brett Payne at Photo-Sleuth has some lovely examples of walkies on his blog, including some by Jacksons.

According to 1911 census details for the address, this is John Patterson Newby Utting, his wife Elizabeth and possibly one of his daughters, Miriam. In 1911, John was aged 59, born in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, in 1852 and he was a carpenter by trade. John had been married to Elizabeth (born in West Ham, Stratford in 1861) for less than a year and they were living with John's two sons and one of his daughters.
Going further back in time to the 1901 census, John was living at 4 Goodey Terrace, Barking with his first wife Sarah M. (born in Millwall, London, in 1855), three daughters and two sons.
BMD records show that John married Sarah Maria Wanstall in 1884 and she died in 1907, aged 53. He married Elizabeth M. Ecclestone in 1910. John died in 1926, aged 74; Elizabeth died in 1941, aged 79.

Remembrance Sunday which this year falls on Armistice Day. This is one of the many First World War 'orphan' soldiers in my collection - there's no information at all on the reverse, not even the name of the photographer, but his cap badge identifies him as a Royal Fusilier.

I haven't anything quite right in my collection for this week's Sepia Saturday so I'm straying off-theme this week.
Postcard sent from Hamilton, Canada to London, England in April 1906. The photograph was taken in September 1905 - I wonder who sent the card and why it took so long to post.
You can see more of this week's images at Sepia Saturday.
