This holiday snap is another photo from the collection of Percy Ebenezer Trower.
Kate and Beatrice Trower (July 1949)
The woman on the left is Percy’s wife Kate Trower and next to her is her sister Beatrice Trower. Beatrice was the second wife of my great-grandfather Henry John Trower, Percy’s brother.
This photo was taken during a coach trip to Maidenhead, Berkshire in July 1949.
This photo is a partner to the one that I showed a couple of days ago.
Kate Trower, Percy Ebenezer Trower, Emily Nye (July 1950)
Here Ern (Henry Ernest Nye) has been replaced by Percy himself, flanked by his wife and sister-in-law. Presumably Ern is now the one behind the camera.
This was taken in July 1950 in Rochester, Kent. Percy described the visit is in his diary:
Tuesday with Doll & Ern went to Rochester, weather came out very bright but windy, it was a good ride, many years since we were there before.
It is very unusual to have an exact date for a photo, it was helped by having a location and a month and year on the back. This coupled with Percy’s diary tells me that the Tuesday in question was the 11th July.
Here is a photo of the couple that I mentioned yesterday, Ern (Henry Ernest Nye) in the middle and Doll (Emily Nye) on the right.
Kate Trower, Henry Ernest Nye and Emily Nye (July 1950)
The woman on the left is Kate Trower, the wife of my 2x great-uncle Percy Ebenezer Trower and the sister of Emily Nye. The photo was taken in July 1950, almost certainly by Percy, in Rochester, Kent.
Both women were the daughters of John and Emily Standing. Just to make things a little more complicated another of their daughters, Beatrice Standing, was the second wife of my great-grandfather Henry John Trower.
