Old photographs

Uncle John W Cobb's mother was one of New Zealand's first female photographers. Some of her photos are stored in the national archives of The National Library of NZ. Today I requested to view her photographs at the Alexander Turnbull Library in Wellington. It was a very special moment to hold the pictures taken by my great great grandmother more than 100 years ago. 

There picture above left is interesting as it is of a small boy called Noel who it seems became a WW1 soldier.
