Wow. I believe Joseph Barnett is possibly a great great great grandfather (but do not know my family history this far back so not sure) of mine.
My father recently passed away and amongst many old family documents I have just found a document relating to Joseph Barnet’s purchase of Alma Cottages in 1877.
I have other documents relating to purchase/sales of other properties in what was Leigham Lane, Eardley Road and Sunnyhill Road, where my great grandfather and grandfather, John and Robert Bush were leather merchants. Fascinated to find this photo.
Nick. Thanks for getting in touch. I can't remember where I found the photo and at the time researched the address as Alma Cottage. Would you like to email me and we can share information and check what we have in our archives firstname.lastname@example.org
