Mr Platt, corn miller (repost)

Another repost from the ‘old’ site, this one from July 2008 …

Every now and again we feature a particular picture or album that has caught our eye, and we think visitors will be able to help with.

Mr Platt, Corn Miller, Manchester, 1870sHere’s an interesting one that the genealogical wizards out there will no doubt be able to help track down. Unusually for a Carte de Visite it has been captioned with a surname and occupation. So we have a Mr Platt, who was a corn miller, and the photo was taken in Manchester. From the visual evidence I would say late 1870s or into the 1880s.

It’s one of several photos of mine that I have placed in a set aptly titled ‘A selection of named but unknown people‘. Take a look at the pictures and see how many you can help identify…
