The Buckley Sisters: Martha and Emma, Ashton - U. Lyne, Greater Manchester, England, 1890s



This photograph was taken by F. Beech at the studio on 24 Mill Lane, in Ashton Under Lyne, in Greater Manchester, Lancashire, England.  I am guessing it was taken in the late 1890s/early 1900s.

I found a Buckley family in Ashton-Under-Lyne in the 1891 census, consisting of William, the father, born abt. 1849.  His wife's name is Susannah and they have six children: James, Isaac, John, Nancy, Martha (age 7) and Emma (3).  There's a four-year spread between Emma and Martha.  Do they look that far apart in the above photo?
