Christopher Lewis' Photograph Album

Two years ago Christophe Lewis and his brother Tim visited us and gave us the opportunity to scan their photograph album that contained 40+ photographs of their grandmother Caroline Pask and her family. These have finally been included in an electronic album.

Many of the photographs were unidentified. Two of the photographs were taken in New York in the late 1890s, and were of three young brothers - Durant, Marshall Woolhouse, and Royal Charles Pask. Inscribed on the back were their dates of birth. We were unaware of the connection between these children and Caroline although they were obviously relatives.

Recently, we have made the connection that these photographs were from Caroline's brother Charles who immigrated to America.
