Relative from the distant past

Relative from the distant past

Thank you to my brother, Richard, for sending me this photo of our great-grandad, Peter Bullough, who died at his home in Lancashire in 1909. Richard reckons that old Peter looks a bit like me. I am not so sure. Perhaps I ought to grow a beard. Peter was the father of 15 children. He survived to the age of 76, despite spending most of his working life underground as a fireman in the pits around Ashton-in-Makerfield. He rose to the position of colliery under-manager. One of Peter's sons, William, who was our dad's father, was present at his death.
