Recently found, this photograph of a young girl in a lacy outfit is presented on a rather battered board with the name ‘Irene M Hargreaves’ written on the back.
Alongside it was a cabinet card of a girl wear a similar hat and dress:
The handwriting on the back of this second photograph is more difficult to read, but my best guess is “Doris Mary Sandoe, aged 2 1/2 years, 1895”. According to census data a Doris/Dora Sandoe was born in Broadclyst, Devon c1893, the daughter of surgeon John Worden Sandoe. Is this the same Doris?
And where did Irene and Doris get their wonderful hats?!
