About this memory

Inscription on reverse of photograph reads:

“Wilson Sisters born to Jane Newton Grahame in 1910, 1913, 1915”

The names of the siblings have not been identified, but Jane Newton Grahame married a George Chambers Wilson in 1909.

Jane was born in the Leith South district in 1889, and she died in 1975. Her mother’s maiden name was Robertson. George was born in 1887 and died in 1964.

Going by the mother’s maiden name, it is possible that the children’s names are (left to right) – Mary, Helen, and Isabella.
