I now know what my great grandfather looked like

Today I had a lovely long and chatty lunch with a relative I haven’t seen since I was a young girl so we had much to catch up on. Amidst the family story swap we shared old photos we’d inherited, so at long last I have a photo of my great grandfather Joseph Green. Here he is, with my great grandmother Charlotte Green nee Senior. Joseph died in 1925 at the age of 57, so this must have been taken not long before he died. He died of cancer and, looking at the photo, I wonder if this was taken when he was already ill. The location is a mystery as it’s not familiar to me but is most likely to have been taken in Leeds.

Joseph and Charlotte Green
