    This album is mostly postcards sent to or from various family members or friends. There are very few family photographs in it. Most are blank on the reverse of the card, however some of the postcards do indicate the whereabouts of family members.

Also present is his stepbrother Henry Court, 14, born Liverpool, Lancashire and his sisters Mabel, 3, born Bruston, Staffordshire and Florence, 1, born Birmingham, Warwickshire.
