Rugby Avenue, number 2, interior view showing two small children (Little London)
Black & White imagec1905. This is the interior of number 2 Rugby Avenue, the home of keen amateur photographer and woodturner by trade, Adolphus Parkin Barker and his wife Annie. Their two little children are wearing white starched petticoats, as both boys and girls did at the time. Edwin, born in 1904, is on the left and Ada, born in 1901, is on the right. They are perched on dark wood furniture. Edwin appears to be in a highchair but is not strapped in as children would be nowadays. The room in the back-to-back, double-fronted, end terraced house is richly furnished with floral wallpaper, pictures, mirrors and ornaments. The table is covered by a chenille cloth protected by a small white one while the children are eating. Adolphus, or Dick as he was known, was the son of Addyman Barker who lived in Bedford Place. He took several photographs of various members of his family around this time.
