Family photo in the yard

by Richard Overy

Scanned from a postcard bought at Spitalfields Market, London.

The message doesn’t seem to have been written at the time the photograph was taken but at a much later date by a relative.

Aunt Jenny standing on the right, Uncle Genas (usually called ‘Gene’) sitting:

when they lived at Layer-De-La-Haye. Genas was brother to Grandfather Haynes.


The composition of the photograph is great and the pets have been included in this wonderful family portrait.
