'Mac' and Ruth McMurray
'Mac' and Ruth McMurray
'Mac' - Uncle Sam McMurray and his 2nd wife, Ruth in the garden of their home in Chicago. Ruth sent this photo at Christmas to 'Aunt Bella' (Sam's mother's sister, Isabella Allan Cowen in Liverpool, England). On the back of the photo she writes that they are busy settling into 'Mac's' lovely home.She hopes to meet Bella someday. US relatives of Ruth say the McMurray's lived in a wonderful big house in Western Springs, a very nice suburb of Chicago. Family stories from the US recall that he had a seat at the Chicago Board of Trade (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicago_Board_of_Trade )

1908 cup Darwen
1908 cup Darwen
My mother, Doris Entwistle, had a cup identical to this. She said all babies born in Darwen in 1908 were given one of these cups.

The Mayor at the time was George Pickup Holden and in 1908 Darwen had just adopted The Early Notification of Birth Act which required parents to notify the Medical Office of Health within 36 hours that a birth had taken place. Once the the MOD became aware of the birth he arranged for the newly appointed health visitor to visit the family and give advice on the care of the new born. This was an attempt to reduce infant mortality. At the end of the 19th century about 20% of infants never lived to see their first birthday.

George Pickup Holden paid for the sliver plated cups out of his own pocket and were given to parent who allowed the health visitor to visit. The scheme only started in February 1908 and ended at the end of Holden's term as Mayor in November 1908. I have calculated that between 600 - 700 births took place during this period but there are no records as to how many cup were given out. (Thanks to Tony Foster for this information.)

8 Eastern Terrace, Brighton
8 Eastern Terrace, Brighton
In 1881 an Ellen Robertson, born in Liverpool, was working as a housemaid at 8 Eastern Terrace, Brighton. (RG 11/1077)

EASTERN TERRACE: This imposing terrace has nine large, four-storey, listed houses of about 1827-8, some of the finest in the town. Nos.1-2 and 9 have wide bow fronts, while no.8 has a concave facade. Most have Doric porches, and nos.5-7 have unstuccoed first floors faced in yellow brick. No.1 was occupied from 1836 until 1858 by the first Lord Sudeley, and then by Sir Albert Sassoon in 1876-96; the Bombay Bar in St George's Road (q.v.) behind the house was constructed as his private mausoleum. The house became the Court Royal Hotel in 1914, and was converted into Court Royal Mansions in the early 1950s. No.2 was the home of the famous journalist George Augustus Sala in the 1890s, while no.9 was occupied for some time by King Manoel II of Portugal during his exile; it later became the Royal Sussex Hotel and then part of the MunicipalTrainingCollege until the 1970s. {44,46,83}

Albert was the main town behind the lines for the Allies nearest to the 1916 Somme battlefields. It lies on the main D929 road that runs east to Bapaume across the Somme battlefields, and west to Amiens in the other direction (although the D929 now diverts to the south around Albert, the original road still runs through it).

For a town at the heart of the British activities in this region, there are surprisingly few Great War sights to see in Albert. Devastated during the war and rebuilt afterwards, it has to be said that it is not as attractive a city as Ypres. As a base for battlefield touring both accommodation and restaraunts are fairly limited. However, it is an important location on the battlefield, and this page describes what there is to be seen. In terms of the history of the war, Albert came to be associated with the British when their troops took over the lines here in the summer of 1915. After the war, Albert was 'adopted' by Birmingham.

In the centre of Albert is one of the most famous icons for the British in the Great War - the Golden Virgin on top of the Basilica. The golden statue of the Madonna holding aloft her child was visible from far away, and of course was an excellent target for enemy artillery. It was damaged fairly early on, in January 1915, and the statue was knocked from its perch but stayed leaning at an angle before being secured by the French in that position.

A superstition grew up that the war would end only when the statue finally fell. It remained, somewhat improbably, in the same position all the time that Albert was in French and then British hands. The Germans advanced into Albert during their Spring Offensive in 1918, and well aware that the tower could be used as an excellent observation point by the Germans, it was British artillery that then deliberately targeted it and the statue finally fell. Albert was retaken by the British (the 8th East Surreys) four months later, but it was another three months after this until the Armistice.

Possibly Albert. His half-sister Charlotte Hollingham Robertson was born at 188, Euston Road, Pancras, London in 1878 when Albert would have been 7. This photographer's studio was in Euston Road. We think the photo was passed down the family.
