    This is the second picture in the album, next to that of Leah. The chap sitting is granddad Tom Ellis but who is the one standing? We feel confident it is his brother-in-law, Horace Edgar Bradley, but it would be nice to know for sure. Horace married Clara Elizabeth Ellis, otherwise known as Dolly. Confusing, as Leah was also known as Dolly!

    Horace was Horace Edgar Bradley (464), Tom's brother-in-law. Horace married Clara Elizabeth Ellis (462) otherwise known as Dolly. Dolly died in 1928 and as this is the first of three cards on this album page we can assume they were sent prior to this year.
