Ref No:a04852
Title:Croquet at Kenwood Park, Kenwood Road with George Wostenholm, wife Eliza sitting on his right and her sister Miss Randle standing on his left
Location:Sheffield_Nether_Edge
Date Period:1800-1850
Copyright::G. Tweedale
Notes:

From a scrapbook marked 'Kenwood.'

This picture of a croquet party on the lawn at Kenwood must have been taken not long before George Wostenholm's death in 1876, at the age of 74. He stands (with a top hat on).

This photograph was given to Geoff Tweedale by American antiquarian arms dealer and historian, the late  Norman Flayderman. It appears to have been from the Wostenholm archive, which was acquired by American knife collectors c.1970s, shortly before Washington Works was demolished. Most of the archive was subsequently shipped to America, but was eventually acquired by Sheffield Archives in the early 1990s.
