|This photo allows for easy comparison of
the two uniforms.
It is not a great quality document, but
it couldn't be more *spot on* for my subject !
So thank you guys for that photo together.
Farnborough is in the close vicinity of
An "Alex. Endacott" was operating a photographer's
studio in London in 1884-85 and 1886 (with an associate). The
backplate of this CDV states that he has been "Established
14 years (in Farnboro)".
This would lead us c. 1900, which is quite consistent with the
look of these gentlemen ; they may well have taken a photograph
prior to sailing to South Africa.
