A beautiful early photo of early English gentility. Both John and his wife Augusta seem to have French surnames, Floyer and Gilliat. Found in Lostwithiel, Cornwall, England UK. An "ambro" photo of John, taken at about age 53. The image is somewhat dark in tone, but what a beautiful gift to see his face and clothing clearly, and a clearly signed and rare one-o-a-kind piece.
Size: 3.75 x 4.5 inches
Note: Hello from ~debra. I have spent years collecting over 10,000 ID’d lost family photos & paper from US and now 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)
