Congratulations to FHSC member John Fallows who entered the Family Photo Competition run by Who Do You Think You Are? that was advertised on our social media and news pages during the latter part of 2020.
John was announced as a runner up in the 'Dressing-up' category with the wonderful family image shown above
The image is of Florence [Florrie] Pownall Smith Fitton, born in Bolton 1887, where John’s family mainly lived. Florrie was a qualified seamstress, as is obvious from this magnificent costume. The image is taken circa 1917. Florrie's mother was Caroline Hodkinson Pownall, born on 22 December 1859, she came from Hurdsfield, Macclesfield. She was born in Hurdsfield Road and later lived in Lansdown Street.
