Jim Salthouse with Annie Salthouse?

Jim the Boatman   This is a photograph of my grandfather, James Thomas Salthouse - we don't know the lady, perhaps it was his grandmother? Jim must have been about 5 years old at a guess and he is holding a small boat. On the reverse of the photograph Uncle Frank has written 'Jim the Boatman'. The building looks late Victorian with decorative ridge tiles on the roof, maybe it was a sports pavilion. This could be at Walton-on-the-Hill (Liverpool), Ditton/Hough Green near Widnes or even at Alderley in Cheshire. Does anyone recognise it? Salthouse Gallery

Dolly the Pony; Salthouses at Green Lane Farm Ditton

William Salthouse with Janet and Lucy and Dolly the pony   My great-grandfather, William Salthouse, with his daughters Lucy (on the right) and Janet (on the left) and Dolly, the pony. The photograph is taken at the smallholding which we think was on Green Lane in Ditton (Hough Green), near Widnes, probably around 1910. The complete photograph is on the Ditton page in the Galleries Salthouse Gallery

Garden Swing, Salthouses at Green Lane Farm, Ditton

Garden Swing  Taken about the same time as the first picture, this is the Salthouse family at Ditton again, sitting on what appears to be a home-made garden swing. The smart lady on the left is Lucy Salthouse, sitting next to her is my great grandfather William Salthouse, then great grandmother Janet Salthouse (nee Janet Braidwood); William Salthouse is the younger man wearing the flat cap - he was ill - then shy Janet Salthouse. Standing behind them is my grandfather, Jim, James Thomas Salthouse, who had just come home from school at Widnes Technical Institute. I wonder who built the swing? Salthouse Gallery

Playing Cricket, Salthouses at Green Lane Farm, Ditton

Playing Cricket   My grandfather could only have been about 5 when this picture was taken - was it taken on the same day as the 'Jim the Boatman' picture? He and his sister Janet had been playing cricket, Janet is still wearing her cricket cap and they both look as if they've been running around with great fun. William Salthouse (Our Wil) is also in the picture. He wasn't well so perhaps he was sitting in the sun whilst the children played. No date is given for the picture; if grandfather was about 5 years old then 1902 would be an approximate date. Salthouse Gallery

Jim the Ploughman at Green Lane Farm. Ditton

Jim Salthouse, probably aged 5 or 6, with a plough. We are sure that the field is in Ditton near Widnes. Can anyone help? In the background (left) is a road with a terrace of cottages facing the field, some cottages backing onto the field and what looks like a small holding in the centre of the picture. On the right the horizon is a sparse hedge with a row of leafless tree behind.  On the reverse of the photograph Uncle Frank has written "Jim the Ploughman". Salthouse Gallery
