Alfred & Amelia Shaw

leave a comment »




This photo is from the first page of the same album. Lavinia has written “Alfred & Amelia” on the back and Mary Shaw’s caption is “Alfred & Amelia ?1864”.

Alfred Heywood Shaw was born in January 1858 and his sister Amelia Sarah Shaw in July 1861. Estimating the children’s ages in this and the companion photo of Arthur and Lavinia suggests to me that 1866 might be a better date than 1864.

Either date would fit with G. W. Perry’s operation at 49 Elizabeth Street from 1863 to 1871 (see ‘More Information’ against another Perry photo)
