  • Thank you Tim
    A couple of the photographs do mention the Western Daily News. The key is the photographers name is credited to “Garratt” – this may be John William Garratt (also spelt Garrett), who was a photographer in Bristol, operating between 1905 and 1947. it is likely he did work for the paper and was a Methodist because I have a number of postcards credited to him. I hope this helps

  • Hi Steven, I’m very interested in the source of these photos- is it Western Daily News? Was it when the museum opened? It may help a historic discovery !

    Thanks
