Lamb family c. 1918

Mary Jane Lamb nee Matches, her husband Alexander Lamb, a seafaring man, and their first daughter, Alma. Alma Lamb was born in 1916, so this must be about 1918-19.

Mary Jane was my great-aunt, sister of my grandfather Robert Matches (1882-1953).

With thanks to Ali James. Mary Jane and Alexander were his grandparents, Alma his aunt.
