Person shown

ROWDEN, A.O.  (1877-1960)


Rowden himself is at the bottom right of the group; the others are unidentified. The title in Rowden's photo album, now in a private collection, is 'The over 42's. Still in Mespot, July 1919.'

Rowden (birth registered q3 of 1877) would have turned 42 in summer 1919, so if the date is correct this photograph must be taken soon after his birthday. However the date seems to be out of sequence with others in Rowden's image numbering (some later images are dated June) so he may have misremembered the date when identifying the images in his album.
