The Photos Belonging To Jessie Robertson Of Aberdeen

July 02, 2022  •  Leave a Comment

I recently purchased a collection of photos and postcards belonging to Jessie A G Robertson who lived at 1 Manor Walk, Woodside, Aberdeen. All those precious little items, so carefully kept in a chocolate biscuit box. It seems so sad after all those years Jessie kept them safe, they are now unwanted. I would love them to be of use to family researchers in the future. I have been unable to find a definite birth record for Jessie, but think she was born around the 1920s. Her parents were James Main Robertson born in 1881 and Robina Robertson (Nee Graham) born in 1884. The family lived at 74 Leslie Terrace in the 1940s and 50s moving to Manor Walk in the late 1950s. They looked like such a happy family.

Another item in the box as a tiny little photo album called a Stamp Photo Album from around the Edwardian period. I have never seen such a tiny little album. I suppose it was for people to carry around in their pocket or bag. The photos are only about 2 to 3 cm high but are so wonderful. I'm sure they are not studio shots as they are too relaxed. They are a little snapshot in history of a few people long gone. In my opinion much to precious not to be preserved and shared.
