|000025 Amos Glenister blacksmith and family|
.Amos Glenister and family at the blacksmith's forge, Boxmoor about 1893
The photograph was taken at Boxmoor, Hertfordshire, about 1893, in front of what was then the village forge. The forge, now the "Queens Arms" public house, was where brothers Joseph and Amos Glenister worked as blacksmiths and farriers. They lived at number 10 Cornerhall, a small street alongside the forge.
The date of the photograph is not confirmed. I have estimated it based on the apparent age of the oldest child. It may be possible to estimate more accurately from the peeling poster which appears on the wall in the background. The poster appears to have the words "Vote for" which suggests it may be for a local election. The words underneath may be the name of an election candidate, but are difficult to make out. I would welcome any comments on the likely date of the photograph.
For the technically minded, the original photograph was about 4 inches wide by 3 inches high. The photograph was turned into a high resolution computer image by the company "Picture This". The high resolution image pixel size is 4053 wide by 2885 high. The image is reproduced here at lower resolution pixel size of 500 wide by 356 high.
