See What You Can See, Please (details On Old Photos)?

Assuming you're bored to tears by the Tory leadership debate and are sheltering indoors from the heat, perhaps you might like to look closely (running any filters and software you have) at the following photos?Part of my ongoing research into the history of my street involves intently studying and often redating old photos by comparing shop signs to trade directories etc. Sometimes, as with the photos below, I *think* I can see something but others-whose opinion I respect- can't always  and so…See More

"The 1921 census has just been published on the Find My Past website - it might provide some information on May Bone for that year (she's probably also in the 1911 census). The 1921 is quite a good system in that you pay per item and you can get…"

May Bone

I am researching my local area's history- Red Lion st. Aylsham in deepest, darkest, northest Norfolk. According to Kelly's 1908 Norfolk Directory , May Bone had a studio on Red Lion street that she attended on Saturdays.. Unfortunately our forebears seemed to have had a pathological fear of house numbers (even on advertisements for their own businesses!)  and so far I have been unable to ascertain where May Bone had her studio. Does anyone have any information on her time in Aylsham- even if…See More
