One of our HEIRtaggers came across this image in our ‘mystery location’ collection and decided to find out more.
She sent us this report:
‘Having spent a happy couple of hours yesterday evening doing some more ferreting, I can confirm that Resource ID ; 35259
Original Filename : Wyliebx3im002.tif

has now been identified as

The exact date is more difficult to determine.

Last name First name Born Died Event Record set

So that would place this photograph between 1901 & 1906′
