It is a high quality photograph with 100+ people, gathered (my elderly relative thinks) in Horsham Park. Several members of my mother's Lipscombe family, including my mother and 2 of her sisters are there as teenagers, so I would date it to about 1925.
Curiously there are far more women in the photo than men,
and most of the men are standing well to the back.
This suggests to me that it celebrates some sort of event organised by Horsham women.
By zooming in on Photoshop it looks like a number of the ladies are wearing what
appears to be oval identity labels.
I would be very grateful for any help in identifying the occasion for which this large group of people was assembled.
Bryant John Thomas Smart
Born 25 Jan 1884 North Ambersham, Sussex
Died 30 June 1970 Haywards Heath
London Metropolitan Police Retired to Brighton
I believe there may be living descendants of this gentleman in Sussex.
His oldest son was Albert George Smart born 1910 in London.
I believe he travelled to South Africa.
I would like to know if he returned to England.
|Lady in the Lace Cap
There are no markings on this photo.
It was in the effects of Alfred Robert Burrows,
who we now believe was Alfred Robert OVERALL of Brighton.
Due to family resemblances,
we are wondering if the subject of the photo was someone related to him in Brighton
-- maybe even his mother, Harriett (Dagger) Overall.
Does anyone recognise her?
|Laura Swenson Ackerman|
This merry band of ladies must be having a short break from their normal duties!
I have studied this photograph and have figured they are playing with rhubarb sticks in the summer
I guess the evening meal might just include those chicken legs /drum sticks too!
The lady on the right is my late grandmother Ellen (Nellie) LEET (nee BURNS).
I am keen to find out who her colleagues were and where they are working.
|I would be keen to hear from anyone who has any information.||Patricia Veal|
Eva LEET (my late mother),
here in the white t-shirt was I know a keen cyclist and lived in Haywards Heath.
Apparently she could lift up her bike with just her little finger!
Could this photo could be Brighton and who is her companion?
Was she also from Haywards Heath?
I understand my mother belonged to a local ‘Sussex’ cycling club and enjoyed going off on very
long cycling trips.
|Samuel Hall Parks
|Born Rotherfield 1859, died Eastbourne 1928, outside his watchmaker's shop in Seaside, Eastbourne.||Linda Hall|
|Tommy Hall Parks
Samuel's younger brother who died of TB in 1886 aged 25.
I have virtually no family photos from my father's family except for the postcard above showing his mother's father, Samuel.
I've copied the others from a relative's collection and would be delighted to hear from anyone who can help to identify the third and fourth photos.
Might this be Samuel, or perhaps his father. The latter died aged 35. Is this man older?
On the reverse is "R. Morton-Day, Eastbourne School of Photography, 45 Gildridge Road".
Could this be Samuel's wife Sarah Penfold, born in Brighton in 1857 and died in Eastbourne in 1918.
Taken by G. Austin, 70 Seaside, Eastbourne.
|My Grandmother, Fanny Taylor nee` Pride, is in both photographs,
in the rather floral blouse.
I would like to know if any one can say where they might have been taken and what the
occasion might have been. They are thought to date to around 1920.|
I think that the photographer, A. H. Stickells might give a clue as he was quite well known for operating from a caravan in the area of Crowborough.
My Great Uncle Arthur Harvey is standing 2nd (L).
Apparently the photo was taken in Reeves studio in Lewes (they) think.
|Two photos of weddings we think 1930's in Lewes. The common factor to both is my Great Uncle born Lewes 1902. His father was Frederick George Harvey born 1877 Lewes, and lived latterly at 46 Western Road,Lewes. I would like the other people in the photos indentified if possible. The name Ferner, of Demontford road Lewes, came to the mind of my mother but very unsure.||Angela Chitty|
My Great Uncle Arthur Harvey sitting 1st (L) less formal.
Possibly (vaguely) taken at the Grange in Lewes.
|Man and woman taken by W Prudden of 19 Tidy Street, Brighton in c. 1870s or 1880s. Photographer's ref. 42556. 252KB.||All three photos are from my late grandfather's collection but unfortunately I do not know who the people are and I am keen to see if anyone has any information to confirm their identities. The people in the photos are likely to be part of the Page or Waller family.||Mark Page|

|Is this the Toronto Centre, Lewes? And what is the structure?|
|The postcard has intrigued me for many years, and I would be most grateful if someone could shed any light on what this structure is and where it is situated. I have understood it to be at the bottom of Toronto Terrace Lewes. Having grown up in Lewes I would love to obtain photographs of my old haunts||Wendy Seares|
|Kate Stubbs and |
This photo was found in my husband's grandmother's effects, but I can't find any connection to her.
I think they are KATE STUBBS and WILLIAM HOADLEY, and from FREEBMD research it would appear that they married in 1895 East Preston,Sussex
My husband's grandmother was BLANCHE EMILY MOORES nee FIELDER.
Does anyone know this couple? If so I would be pleased to hear from you.
