First World War Soldier
H. G. Moulden
27a, High Street, Hitchin, Herts
Their names are George and Mary
He has probably just joined up to fight in WWi
The picture was taken by a Hitchin Photographer
Who are they? A long shot?
Perhaps someone can recognise the regimental buttons?
John Macfarlane (19jkm40 @t telus.net) of Canada writes: While I do not know who these people are I do have a very similar photo of I believe my grandfather George Gower in C.E.F about 1915-1916 and a brother taken by the same photographer in Hitchin. The setting is the same, same chair and backdrop. The photographer was H.G.Moulden of 27A High Street, Hitchin.
Studio photographs, such as this one, can be useful in helping to date old family pictures. Most photographers frequently updated and improved their studio and if the date of one photograph is know others taken with the same props are likely to be of a similar period.
