The Fannings

This family is almost certainly from Newtown in Waterford city, and Mr Fanning may have had something to do with a Butter Store. I'd say from the clothes, etc. that this is quite early for a Poole photo? (1884 is our earliest Poole glass plate.)


It's a great shot of parents, children, and puppy all en famille, and their freckliness (officially recognised medical term) is fascinating...


Date: 1880s??
