The Grapes - c1900. Image provided by Don Ferguson, New York State.   ``Would you know someone who can fill me in as to the make and year of the automobile pictured there and, perhaps, the names of the shops nearby?  I have to assume that the picture contains one or more of my relatives.  My grandfather, Horace Ward, had a shop somewhere in King's Lynn.  He sold or made (or both) bicycles, among other things.  He married the former Emily Forman, had three children (Sidney, Alice - my mother, and a boy who died in childhood) and moved to Welland, Ont., Canada sometime before 1920. Any help you can give is appreciated.''
No parking problems outside the Grapes, c1900.
Image supplied by Don Ferguson - many thanks.
( Don believes that family members may be in the vehicle.
Horace Ward married Emily Foreman and he had a shop where bicycles were sold, and perhaps made. They moved to Canada c1920.
The make and year of manufacture of the car would also be of interest.)


The COOPERS ARMS to at least 1850.
