The Fourth of October, 1899. The marriage of Robert Douglas Muir M.D. & Edith Mary Barnes
The building behind is believed to be The Limes, just off New Cross Road, South London. It was already owned by my grandfather Robert Muir and from this date became the family home. This wedding photograph appears to have been taken in a side street, against the high brick wall which was the boundary of the property, with the photographer standing on the opposite pavement. A temporary marquee can be made out over the path leading to the front door. Presumably this was part of the reception arrangements.
This page provides and entry into all the pages about my family history. Several of the people in the wedding photograph will eventually feature, but to start with you will find the histories of Robert's great grandfather, grandfather, father and associated wives and children. The links to those pages are below left. Below right is a list of links to PDF documents mostly relevant to my family history. There are also links to them from the relevant positions in the family history pages. The names in the graphically displayed family tree page also link to the relevant history pages.
If you would like to contact me, try 'tomaso.muir', followed by the 'at' thingy of course; then 'googlemail' and the usual 'dot', and finally our old friend 'com'. It seems absurd to have go to such lengths to avoid unsolicited messages - but there it is.
(Thomas Muir of Huntershill)
