1915 Florence, Doris & Albert Jeffreys Photo, Found in Devon England
On reverse: "Albert, Doris, Florence Jeffreys. Guess 10, 11 1/2, and 13" is handwritten in old pen ink script. Photo type: RPPC Real Photo Postcard Photograph. Photographer: Unmarked, Unknown. The "guess" clue is a list of their 3 ages in photo, and you are asked to figure out which is the oldest.
This is a beautiful old RPPC (real photo postcard) image of 3 children taken outside on a sunny and warm day. The eldest female child, Doris Jeffreys, age 13, is sitting in a chair, and her two (assumed) siblings stand on either side. Albert Jeffreys is age 11.5 or 10 years and Florence Jeffreys, the same. The two outer children are close in age, and is impossible to say which is older in the photo, They are all squinting a bit in the sunlight, and they resemble each other, especially the elder Doris and Albert.
This vintage photo is from the WWI era in England, and was found in Southwest Devon, in the city of Newton Abbot. You can see remnants of a large cast iron fence, stone storefront, and stone monument in background, as if they sitting are all together in a village park. It could be from anywhere in England or UK, as material and families move and change. We were happy to find it.
The surname is also spelled Jefferies, Jeffereys, Jefferys in census records. This is a beautiful old piece ,and it an be viewed very well in large, actual size. 3 really cute British kids, now we just need to find their Jeffreys genealogy in census records! They did not come up quickly, but very little work was done. Any help or correction appreciated, email Debra here.
Size: 3.5 by 5.5 inches
Note: Hello from ~debra. I have spent years collecting over 10,000 ID’d lost family photos & paper from US, UK flea markets & antique shops. I do the best gen research I can, but am always open to corrections. This is an original antique item, not a reprint. A new high quality rigid sleeve is included for extra protection, especially during shipping. You may buy a piece alone, or large intimate 300 dpi scans of the front and back sent immediately via email, or both. Please search carefully, as they are often found together and many may be related. I also invite you to join me at Ancestorville Genealogy on facebook. Thank you, enjoy! ~Debra Clifford (contact info on top bar)
