Lewis Tomalin (founder of Jaeger) and family at 20 Cambalt Road, Putney, c. 1895

The more I look at this image the more I love it. Dated from the children's estimated ages as c. 1895, it strikes me as being quite unusually relaxed for the era, and of exceptional quality.

 

There is no indication of studio, but on the reverse a hand written caption states: "at 20 Cambalt Road, Putney H F Tomalin, Mrs Tomalin [Klara], Mr Tomalin [Lewis], Marie Tomalin & Maggie Tomalin".

 

This is part of a large archive of Tomalin family images I acquired and am slowly starting to sort. Images date from c. 1860s to 1970s. Many are named, particularly the early ones. I am also starting a family tree on ancestry.co.uk to try to document them and research the family (Lewis Tomalin, pictured here, started the company Jaeger in 1884). See trees.ancestry.co.uk/tree/20784266/ (I think you need to be a member to see this)
