Taken: 1890-1907, Ref: M1714

Henry R Resbury and his wife Sarah at back of their house in Bridge Street. At about 77-81 Bridge Street. See photo M1707 for the front M66, and M1726 for another view of the back of the house with no leaves on the creeper. Probably Henry (1827-1907) helped his father Thomas in the chimney sweep’s business in Bridge Street, but was also a skinner at the tan yard in Mill Lane. Sarah (1824-1909) was a laundress.
