A good catch for the men on Skinningrove beach: William Halton, W. Cox, ??, the young boy was Tom Richards, W. Dart, Whit Hall, Jim Richards,  ??,  Tom Hart and last but not least A. Hart.

Note the fish creel in the right foreground. Does anyone know the date of this photograph?

Pauline Dolling advised the Archive: “William Halton (watchmaker in Loftus – of Halton’s Jewellers shop) was born in 1869. His younger brother Arthur Halton was my grand father, who worked at Loftus Railway station.”
If it is the same William Halton, then it could be between 1900/10 when he would be 30-40. However his own father was also a William Halton born in 1837. As William Dart was born about 1890, the Archive thinks Pauline’s estimation of the date will be about right. Eric Trembath has asked: “Was W Dart related to my granddad Elijah Bogey Dart? They have a resemblance to each other?”

    The name on the boat is A Jose, John and Anna Jose lived at 4 Ridley Terrace in 1911. John was killed in WW1 25 July 1916 and is listed as Jowse on the Skinningrove War Memorial. Could this be the missing man.
    William Dart born Skinningrove 1880 and Elijah Dart born 1872 both sons of John Dart Grocer, General dealer 4 Hutton St, Skinningrove 1911 census.
