A SUSSEX family posing in about 1896 for, probably, their first ever group snapshot.

The photograph was taken in either Framfield Road or Alexandra Road, Uckfield.

It shows proud dad William Batchelor with wife Elizabeth (nee Soanes) and children Elsie, Florence and Frank.

The garden looks as though it has been devoted to growing vegetables. Very sensible.
