. . . 1912. 100 years ago today. Unfortunately I can't tell you who these gentlemen are, nor where they are exactly, other than being in the garden of the man in the middle. I have a number of album pages relating to his family, but haven't as yet unearthed the clue to finding who they are.
Looking at this snapshot, were it not for the date, I probably wouldn't have thought it was August based on their attire (although I know suits were the norm) and demeanour.
The 25th August was a Sunday in 1912, and according to The Times (newspaper) they were enjoying a break in the rain,
"Over a large portion of England and Wales the rain which began on Thursday night lasted until after midday on Saturday..... . A gradual improvement in the weather consequently took place, and in the earlier half of yesterday a clear sky was reported in many parts of Great Britain."
The forecast for Monday remained, 'mostly overcast and rainy' and 'temperature below the normal'.
Looking on the bright side, at least it wasn't a Bank Holiday weekend back in 1912.
