A family album – Chester

I bought this photograph album at a house clearance stall at a local antique fair a week or so ago.

There’s no text to give any clues to who, where and when.

So, if you recognise anything or would like a close up of any image for further scrutiny, let me know, I’d be grateful for any info at all.

Here’s a selection of some of my favourites.
This page shows the variety of print tones available at the time. The quality of photography is varied throughout, and I wonder if some of the images are purchased rather than taken by the family.

Griffiths Bros. Corn Merchants can be found in the centre of Chester (1913). Heres a link to a website that has a similar image taken in the 1920’s.

    Hi, I think the pier could be Colwyn Bay.

    I think the bridge could be Aldford Iron Bridge across the river dee, north of the village of Aldford, Cheshire
