Roberts Photos

Robert lives in Colchester & knew the younger George Wash at the St.Botolphs St. shop. It is still there but has had a variety of uses.

The following three photos are of (Wash?) family in earls Colne but without any firm idea as to who they all are.

Pictures of Old Tom’s gun show it was an early 19thC. flint lock converted to percussion but left handed.

The story was that Tom had taken the gun from poachers.
