A gathering of the Hallam and Goodson families at their home on High Street. Please note that the elderly lady seated front central, holding a baby, should be named Sarah Hallam. She was the wife of Francis Hallam senior (not in this picture) and mother of George Hallam, who is standing behind her.

We would like to thank Mrs. Beryl Smith for allowing us to copy this splendid Edwardian photograph of a gathering of the Hallam and Goodson families. It is exceptional in that their descendents can name every person in the picture.
Most families have collections of photographs, often going back three or four generations, in which people appear who can no longer be named with certainty. Sometimes friends, neighbours or relations can identify people from photographs in their possession.
If you can name any of the unamed people in these other fascinating pictures, please get in touch.
