Typhoid survivors

"Survivors of family of seven after one weeks devastation by typhoid"

 

What a poignant message. Of all the items in this album this is the one that I would like to identify most, and of course return it to a family member. They appear to bear a resemblance to the Young family on the previous page in the album.

 

From a fascinating album of cartes de visite, many images being hand-annotated on the album pages. There are many Scottish connections, and surnames include Bowie, Scotland, Gosman, Campbell etc.

 

See the whole album.

 

One of many images that I am slowly importing from my whatsthatpicture.com website. See the original at www.whatsthatpicture.com/gallery2/main.php?g2_itemId=3010
