Arthur & Gay - Young Adults
This delightful photograph of Arthur the young man, is another that I cannot date or place. If this were a family history site I would be encouraging you all to ask to look at all the old photos and get the senior members of your family to try to date and identify them before it is too late. Was this Arthur's dog? Was this taken in his back garden? Or the back garden of the home that he and his mother lived in before Gay and he was married?
This picture of Gay was taken at Lord Portland's ponds - date 1934 the year she was married to Arthur. With her is one of her students. It was during this period that she did supply teaching at a couple of schools in London.
I love the image. She looks far from elegant but she is so beautiful, and happy in a job she loved.
