Since then, I found this picture of Frances, with her husband, James Mayell.
Frances and James married on 15th June, 1908, and I suspect this photograph was taken not many years after the event.
They look a splendid couple, although James appears a little awkward in front of the camera.
I'm short on details of their life together, so I'm really left to draw my conclusions from what I see.
Obviously a studio photograph, with Frances in a period dress, topped with a fine hat. James in uniform, a medal worn with pride on his tunic.
But there's something about them. Their stance, perhaps a look in their eyes. More than a suggestion that these were two young people who were preparing to face an uncertain future.
