Blanche Kate Rickman, playing the melodeon.

A private photograph, before the Great War.  Provenance not known.

From the Reg Hall Collection.


Keith Chandler has found, in the 1901 Census, a Blanche Rickman, aged 8, living in the southern Hampshire village of Sway.  Which might make her about the right age to be this melodeon player in 1914.  And she had a younger sister called Kate.
