Alfred Henry Shaw

leave a comment »




The last photo from the first page of Lavinia‘s album. Mary Shaw added the caption, “Alfred Shaw born 1855”.

Mary probably mixed up her Alfreds. Alfred Henry Shaw was born in August 1832 and his son Alfred Heywood Shaw in 1858. There are quite a few photos of Alfred Senior and this is definitely him.

Two other Batchelder photos were on the same album page (Lavinia and Eva) and I’ve dated these about 1880. This could have been taken on the same day but to my eye Alfred could be a bit older than 48.
