Default 8 September 1903

Sarah Barks and Joseph Reckless are the bride and groom. They were married on 8 September 1903 at St Giles, Balderton, Nottinghamshire

Sarah was the sister of my great grandfather George Barks although he and his wife Jane don't appear to be on the photograph. Jane was pregnant at the time so perhaps couldn't travel from Burton on Trent where George and his family now lived. Seated next to the bride are her parents George Barks 1837-1905 and Mary nee Pratt 1841-1918.

Any Barks or Reckless descendants out there who recognise anyone else please contact me.

This is Sidcot school in Somerset which is a Quaker establishment. My grandfather and his siblings and many distant cousins attended as students and my great-grandfather was a schoolmaster there.

In 1908, when the picture was taken, my great aunt would have been a pupil, but I don't think she is in this picture, or if she is, not at the front!



I can't think what they were doing was at all energetic!
