Welcome to thebioscope gallery
The artist who created this portrait of great grandad Alfred is actually William Spilsbury. Picton House in Bristol still exists and is a grade II listed building, built in 1830.
(thanks again to Susan Wadbrook and especially Hilda Wadbrook for showing me and allowing to scan Great Grandad's picture).
Thanks to help from my sister Susan Wooden, my cousin Susan Wadbrook, and my Great Granddad Alfred!
b. 1845 d. 1887 and had six children.
Imagery from this book (I had as a child) inspired Dad in the 'ducks' space scene (in this album).
