There are 3 miles between Newington above to Canonbury Square N, as mentioned on the gravestone. We assume the gravestone in this photo to be in the Newington or Canonbury Cemeteries. Any help or correction appreciated, email Debra here.
There are 2 other visible stones in the photo for Mr. William Franklin, age 62 years, and his Grandson Arthur Ernest, aged 2 years, same stone. There is a stone behind for Daniel Keyes or Daniel Keyser. This is a beautiful old Victorian mourning or memorial piece.
The CDV Photo was most likely commissioned by the proud Draper family after the large and handsome stone was erected. The photographer is unmarked, and unknown. The gravestone has an ornate architectural cast iron fence around the base of the stone. It was found in London, England.
Size: 2.5 x 4 inches
Note: Hello from ~debra. I have spent years collecting over 10,000 ID’d lost family photos & paper from US 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)
