Bonchurch Village. Postcard by Frith - sent 1907 to Mrs Norman, Muswell Hill, N.
  [AH] [On left] is a photo handed down in our family of William Jenkins Bakery on the village street, Bonchurch. It can be quite precisely dated as my gt gt grandparents, William John JENKINS and his wife Frances Emma, formerly MORGAN, née BULL only married and moved to the bakery in October 1858 [from Newport] and then became bankrupt in 1864. They left the island in 1864/5. So the photo is between 1858 and 1864. It is obviously half of 2 intended for a viewer, I do also have the other half, now. It must have been cut at one point so my mother and my aunt could have one each!
