Elizabeth Burkinshaw circa 1915Early photo of LIZZIE BURKINSHAW (at that time Lizzie CHIPPERFIELD).  There is a stamp on the back reading 1915, if this is true, then Lizzie would have been about 22 yrs old.  The picture was taken at FLORENCE STUDIOS, 103 HIGH STREET, CAMDEN TOWN in NW London.

The picture is a postcard so it’s possible it was taken to send to her husband who was serving in the Army.  The identity of the child is not known.  He/she could have been a nephew/niece of Lizzie’s, but it seems unlikely (there are only a couple who fit the time frame) and it’s strange that this is the only photo from that period that she kept.  Possible it’s a relative of her husband Sidney?
