Studio Portrait

Family Photograph

Thank you to Dave Morgan, Kessingland, Suffolk, England for allowing me to reproduce this Jerome postcard Rosina Spencer(1913-94), one of the members of Dave's family.  The photo was taken on November 26, 1933.

Dave writes:

"There were 7 girls and 4 boys in the family.  Rosina was my Godmother."

Jerome Studios

Jerome had studios throughout Britain, but all appear to have used the same postcard backs for their photos, and the same style of 'rubber ink stamp' to date them, so I am not able to say which of their studios this portrait comes from.

However, Dave tells me that his family lived in London, so it seems likely that this portrait may have come fro a Jerome studio in London.

This is one of several Jerome photos from Dave's family collection that has been hand-tinted.  Is the tinting likely to have been added at the Jerome studio or later?
