Canon Blackmore with his wife and friends examines a book in Bottesford's Old Rectory
This picture, probably belonging to the Grantham Journal, shows the late Canon Blackmore, Rector of Bottesford, examining a book. The location is probably Bottesford’s old rectory, and the people in the picture are:
Standing (L-R): Mr John Thomas Ravell, Mrs Randell, Mr Edgar Culpin, Mr Albert Topps;
Seated (L-R): Canon Blackmore, Mrs Blackmore, Mrs Clarke. Canon Blackmore was rector until 1958 and Mr Ravell passed on in 1961, so this picture may date from about 1955.
