Photographic History - Village Characters - The Dace Family


Mrs Dace is standing on the door step at Harding Cottages. Her daughters Ethel (married Harry Cook) and Alice (married William Akers) are on either side of Nellie Powell. The cottages were demolished for the building of Clifton Lodge Home for Senior Citizens. It is believed that the railings went as scrap metal as part of the 1939/45 War Effort.

This article was first published in A Pictorial History of Eton Wick & Eton.

Note - Ethel was born in 1904 and Alice in 1906. This would suggest that the photograph was taken before WW1. Nellie Powell was born in 1901 and was living at 3, Prospect Place at the time of the 1911 Census.
