The Boy With The Gun

Boy With Gun Cropped

My final post relating to the Barnstaple Album… for a while, at least. I still have some interesting photographs to go through but none that can be easily identified. Take this one for example; a serious looking boy wearing a bowler hat with a gun slung over his shoulder. Norfolk, where the photograph was taken, is a rural area and (rightly or wrongly) hunting was a popular activity.

Two additional cartes-de-visite show a group of boys, presumably brothers. The boy in the centre of the second one appears to be the boy with the gun. Note that his jacket is the same in both images:

Brothers 1   Brothers 2

I am going to move on to a new album in my next post, one that originates in Wales. Watch this space!
