DLI Families

This is Sergeant-Major Joseph Francies with his family. The photograph was taken in about 1900, about 50 years after the first photograph.

DLI Family, 1909 (D/DLI 7/427/2(46))

Try to answer these questions:

  • How many of the people in the photograph are servants?
  • What toys might they have played with (is one of the children is holding hers)?
  • How might they have got around (what can you see in the background)?

Do you have any other questions about the photograph? What do you want to know?
