Mrs Doubleday again

We have already met Mrs Doubleday, the wife of one of our Market Lavington butchers. In the 1930s, the shop (still a butcher’s in 2021) was run by Doubleday and Francis, though Edward Doubleday died in 1936.

His widow, Ellen, lived on until 1949. At the museum, we have a lovely photograph of her in later life.

It was taken by photographer Peter Francis, of the Francis butcher’s family and we see his signature on the mount.

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