Old Photos of Witham

Back of semi-detached house, location unknown, with man

Taken: 1930s, Ref: M2166

Back of semi-detached house with man in garden. Perhaps the same man as in M2165. David Webb who brought the pictures thought it was probably Guithavon Rise (built late 1920s), but in fact the houses there are different. Probably same place as in M2163, M2164 and M2166. Was in small snapshot album which has on the back ‘Butcher’s Studios, Witham. Same Day Service. Developing, Printing, Enlarging’ (George Butcher came mid-1920s).

SourceWebb, David. 87 Station Road, Manningtree, Essex. CO11 1ED The photos formerly belonged to Lucy Croxall and her sisters. A relative of theirs from the Midlands (perhaps a brother) asked David, who was driving him in a taxi, to dispose of them about the 1980s, perhaps when the sisters moved to a home or when one died.
