A 1910 Liverton Mines Scout

A 1910 Liverton Mines Scout

Edward Frederick Dohring pictured in 1910; a proud member of Liverton Mines Boy Scout Troop, he is in full Scout uniform for this early period of Scouting. Baden Powell (a copy of whose signatory hat Edward is carrying) held the first Scout camp on Brownsea Island in 1907. This image taken in a studio gives an idea of how rapidly this active boys organisation had spread. In the 1911 census his family was listed as being resident at 8 Graham Street, Liverton Mines, Edward was then a Grocer’s apprentice; aged 14 years.
