Sarah Jane Slade nee Davis. Submitted by Kathsgirl.48
Sarah in all her finery.

Not sure when this picture was taken, but I think it was before she married. She was born in 1880 and married in 1903. She trained as a milliner and eventually opened her own milliner's shop in the old centre of Bristol where she worked until she retired in 1953 approx. I can just vaguely remember the shop, walking betweeen the counters with the hat stands high above me when I was about 4 or 5years old.

Family Group Submitted by Bo the Bodger
Family group of 4 generations of the same family. MY father is the babe in arms, my grandmother born 1878 is holding him, the lady to the left of the picture is my gt Grandmother born 1851 and her mother my gt gt grandmother born 1821 is on the right of the picture. They came from a solid upper middle class family. Personally I think that my grandmother's dress is beautiful and I feel that it must have been either her wedding dress (she married in 1901) or definitely her best dress.
