Picture of Ada Smith

Ada Smith b.1871

Ada Smith was born in Kirkby Malzeard in North Yorkshire in 1871. I posted about her ancestry and life here. This postcard is of Ada Smith (on the right) with, we believe, her eldest son Henry Cecil Wright and perhaps his son whose name we do not know. My great-grandfather, Harold Wright, was the younger son of Ada Smith. Although most of the family remained in Acomb, we think that Henry Cecil moved to Wolverhampton after serving in the Air Force in WW2. We do not know exactly where or when the picture was taken. On the reverse of the postcard is written in handwriting "Bishop's Castle". There is a small market town by the same name in Shropshire, it is possible that Henry Cecil moved here after the war and was visited by Ada.
