This is a photo of a pair of naive portraits of Captain John Howling and his wife Mary Ann nee Kent (born 1810), together with John Howling's telescope. John and Mary Ann were the parents of Hannah Ann Howling who married Frederick John Minter in Brightlingsea in 1858. The photo was provided by Rob Hall who sold it to a collector in 2012.

A photo dating from 1903. On the left is the drapery and bookshop owned by Edward Minter; on the right is the butcher's shop owned by Herbert Ormes.

Another view of Edward Minter's High Street shop. This postcard (found by James Earley) was published by Wrench around the same time as the photo above.

A photo which appeared in the Colchester Gazette, perhaps from the 1960s or 1970s. The building once used as Edward Minter's shop has changed very little.
