(from Caroline Sanderson nee Minter)

Henry John Minter (born Kensington in 1871) in front of his shop at 67 Portobello Road, Notting Hill. Judging from the billboards, especially the one announcing a fire at Portsmouth Dockyard, this must have been taken in late December, probably between 21 and 25, 1913.

With him is his sister Winifred (born Kensington 1917). Taken in 1936 or 1937, judging from the advertisement for 'When Knights Were Bold' starring Jack Buchanan, which was made in 1936.

Taken on the same day as the above picture in front of the shop at 67 Portobello Road, Notting Hill, this one shows Winifred Minter with her husband-to-be Leslie Collins and her mother Annie May Minter, nee Dennis, who married Henry John Minter in 1898.
