Another picture from the attic

Here you go, Habs. This is a photograph of Ivy Winter’s marriage to Alfred Habershon (my paternal grandparents).

The back of the photo reads:

Uncle Percy & Auntie Annie
with love from
Alfred and Ivy July 2nd 1914

So who are Uncle Percy and Auntie Annie?

Peter Elliott to the rescue (what would Habershons.com do without Peter?). He writes to Suzanna:

. . . I remembered that in 1901 Ivy Winter was living with her Uncle & Aunt in Stockport. To be precise Rev. Edward P Alexander and his wife Annie Louisa. It appears that the P stands for Percy and that Ivy’s mother had an older sister named Annie Louisa. Hence Uncle Percy & Aunt Annie. Ivy must have been close to her cousin Phyllis Maude Alexander because Phyllis was staying with the Winter family in 1911. I woudn’t be surprised if Phyllis was bridesmaid at Ivy’s wedding. It is possble that the Rev Edward P conducted the service. There is a vicar stood to the left of John B Habershon.

Any guesses where Ivy’s father was standing? He was a Major in the RAMC and could be to the right of PJH. I notice that Fred Drummond had a cigarette in his hand. It would be great to identify other people in the photo. Just think Mum was probably being looked after by a nursemaid at Woodgrove.

Thank you, Suzanna for sending these pictures. If you should come across any more . . .

  1. I think Ivy’s father is next to the lady on the very far left at the back, although he could have been in India. As you will gather by now, I’m not very good at this. Also present would perhaps be his brothers Henry and Fred Winter (Ivy’s uncles). Kate Rix (nee Winter), Ivy’s aunt must be there as she and Uncle Joe Rix lived in South London – perhaps it’s their house in the photo? Joe went on the photographic expedition with Alfred (see Alfred’s letters elsewhere on this site). Joe’s sisters Fanny (unmarried) and Mary, Alfred’s mother would also be there of course. One of the young men must be Jack Winter, Ivy’s brother. He was also RAMC and later married Cissie. Also present would be Lydia Habershon, John B’s sister. She was a superb artist and never married. This is all from notes I got from Dad before he died. When he was a boy, Mary, Lydia an Fanny lived at Holmesfield, Kimberworth, Rotherham. They were fetched on Sundays to Oakwood Grange for tea. Florrie was their housekeeper. They all died in the 1930s. More info on Frederick Drummond – he was a composer of Edwardian drawing room songs. Richard still has the sheet music at the Stables. By now dear reader, you will be totally confused…

  2. I love it too David, it’s just looking at History. It was John who had all the stuff, trunks of it, and it was Jean who had the job of sorting it out when she moved. I do have a photo album of “people” from about the same time………..if you want to know who someone looked like…….
