And Dolly Came Too - Sepia Saturday

Sepia Saturday  is a weekly theme which encourages bloggers to publish and share old images and photographs


Joseph Prince Oldham (1855-1917) and his granddaughter Elsie (1906-1989) - plus Dolly  

Elsie Oldham and my mother, Kathleen Danson,  were second cousins, and I am  grateful for Elsie's son, Stuart for the use of this lovely photograph.

Joseph became a carter and coal merchant in Blackpool, Lancashire, in a house with stables,  opposite the North Station.  His son John William Oldham carried on the business. 

In the 1920's, Elsie became the  hairdresser "Elise", working from the family home.
