: Eileen Winthrop's childhood album

: 1905-[1920]

: This album contains photographs from the childhood and adolescence of Eileen Maude Adelaide Winthrop, nee Mackey, born in India in 1905. The photographs are not in chronological order, and some appear to have been added, removed or captioned at later dates. There are studio portraits of EW as a baby and young child, together with her mother, and images of her father, an Officer in the Royal Artillery, in military uniform in India, Mesopotamia and the UK. The majority of the images show EW as a girl, her family and friends in the UK, outside houses or at beauty spots such as gardens or beaches. Many of the groups are captioned with the subjects' first names. There are also a number of photographs of her Girl Guide troop. The majority of the photographs are undated but a small number have been marked 1920.
