We're sorry that one or two of these photos are not quite straight. They are nailed to the page, so will have to stay like that for now. We hope you can resist your urge to straighten them.
Frederic Lindsey (yes, that is the correct spelling of his name).
We also have this photograph, which may be Frederic when he was younger, but we are not certain. What do you think? The information on the back of this photograph ("A Tippins, Photographic Artist, Jermyn Street, Sleaford") certainly ties in with Frederic; he lived at Heckington, near Sleaford in Lincolnshire, until he was between 40 and 50 years old.

The photograph is embossed "W.Horner, Morcambe" and printed as a post card on the back.
She looks to have a narrower face than Cissie. If you think you know, please contact us.
