'Hoar frost'
'Amateur Photographer' 1919-21
Let's reminisce, since we're hearing about Albert, Fred's brother. Here are two photos he sent to the 'Amateur Photographer' in June 1919. The farmyard photo has a coupon on the reverse showing it was entered for the magazine's 'Beginner's Prize Competition' and the other a coupon seeking, 'Print criticism'. It is just possible that the former was taken at Warren Farm,  farmed from the 1680s until 1988, now part of Nonsuch Park. This is subject to any information readers may offer. In 1919, Albert was still living with the family at 66 Chestnut Road, Raynes Park.
