Iris Violet's Hart's life in a car boot - Rugby resident of old..
Rummaging through boxes of ephemera at the local car boot is a must. So when I found a bunch of photographs with the name "Hart" on I was in my element. Hart is a family name - because I didn't know if they were family. I went through the large box and pulled out all the named photographs and associated papers. The elderly gentleman who ran the store wouldn't let me buy the whole box though. He was a dealer of some kind. Who had lots of antique and other relicts. Back at home - I looked on the website and pieced together her past. She did not appear to be a relation of my grandfather, he had several brothers that I have never known, but may be this branch is very distantly related!!
The following week and a few weeks after. I went looking again and found a few more pictures and related ephemera. In all I probably spent about £20.
Yesterday I got round to making a family tree on Ancestry and adding just some of the photographs. The rest I will have on here. As usual - if you have any information. Please contact me by this blog or on Ancestry.
Above is Iris Violet Hart - it says so on the back in pencil. Small writing that is difficult to read.
She is wearing the same coat on other photographs.
This photograph has Iris Violet Hart in the centre with the other two people blank. I would hazard a guess at the man being James Edward Curtis (her husband) and the young child Camelita? (this guess is written on the back of a smaller photograph copy). It looks to have been taken in the 1950s or early 60s.
Nice group of women and one man - taken in the street in front of a pub I think. Pub or works outing? Iris V Hart is sat in front wearing the same coat. The photograph is in a paper frame with "F C Clarke, Photographer, The Studio, Windsor Court, High Street, Rugby" stamped on it. I think the person writing the names on the back was doing so before 1960s. As that is when Iris Hart got married.
Iris Violet Hart again at the English seaside. You can tell it is England - as have to wear a rain mackintosh.
This picture says Jeremy Hart on the back.
Think this is Florence hart with Camilita?
This maybe a Buffalo event or completely unrelated. It was in the same box of ephemera. It is a large postcard format. No other information on it.
Sorry Derek couldn't resist the one below. Baby birth notification was sent to Mr and Mrs A Hart and it was in the ephemera pile. Now in my possession.
On the reverse of this it says - George William Hart and Barbara Elizabeth Young 12/7/1947. Taken on their wedding day.
