I then came across two other photographs, one taken at the same junction and a second near the junction of Hatfield Road and Woodstock Road South. Recently I was shown a copy of yet another photo, left, taken at the same location.
This was surely not coincidence. Was it possible that a commercial photographer recorded local street scenes in the same way the seaside photographer did? Could it have been a Fleetville photographer? Unfortunately, I have copies of the original, not the original itself, and so any photographer's printed stamp on the reverse is missing.
So here is another mystery waiting to be solved. Does anyone have an original photo in their collection in a similar style – an individual person, couple, family, pair of shoppers – walking along a local street. Is there a photographer's stamp on the reverse? Is the location identifiable. Do please email firstname.lastname@example.org if there is any information you can offer. This may have been a regular or occasional open-air trade operating in Fleetville, Camp, or even the park.
