A photographic portrait of Jack Welch

We’ll start with a reminder that the letters Jack sent home from his First World War service can be seen 100 years after the event at www.jackwelchdiaries.wordpress.com .

But here we have Jack (He was actually James) in much later life sitting at his desk and working at some kind of ledger.

Jack Welch - about 1960

We don’t have a year for this photo but the location was a room the family called ‘The Blue Room’ at Beech House on White Street.

Let’s zoom in.

Jack was using a lovely fountain pen

There we see Jack’s hands and a rather lovely fountain pen. The pen would be a museum item now – indeed we have a similar if less ornate one (click here).

Sadly, we can’t quite make out what Jack was working at.

Jack died in 1964.

    Hello Market Lavington MuseumI continue watch your postings with great interest. Would that other museums/archives took so much care. I contacted you once before regarding Ezra Price of whom you knew little of his music shop chain activities. I wonder if anything else has turned up ?In the meantime I wondered if you could tell me the system you use to scan your images as I am always thrilled at the exacting detail you manange to achieve and am in the throes of getting a new computer including a proper scanner. Perhaps you could tell me the scanner you use plus the images operating programme software.With best wishes – Phil Farlow(Abbotts Ann, Hampshire 01264 710603)

Can you add anything to this or do you want to know more?
