GORE and SEDDON of Crooke, Shevington, and Wigan
Started by: maryms (5) Report abuse
I am researching the GORE and SEDDON families of Wigan, Crooke and Shevington. I've recently been given two photograph albums that were once the property of Catherine Bowyer nee Gore (1853-1926), a sister of my great grandfather, William Gore (b Shevington 1846, died Plank Lane, Leigh, 1916). I am trying to identify the sitters in the photographs, many of which were taken in Wigan (others in Bolton, Leigh and elsewhere). I've been successful in identifying some of these but others are more challenging. I wondered whether anyone on the forum has had experience of dating Victorian photographs that were reprinted at a later date than the original in order to provide mementos of someone who had died. I know that this happened but would like some more examples, especially where a carte-de-visite was reprinted as a cabinet print. Any thoughts very welcome. Happy to provide more information.
