[George CARTER]

My Great Grandfather George CARTER 1854-1941.

He was shown as the Landlord of The Prince of Wales Inn in Church Lane Ledbury in the 1891, 1901, and 1911 Census in Ancestry

I've got the original picture and coloured too ! The colours are hand painted pastel, probably done by Mrs Jim SMITH ( Roy's mother ) . So I guess the photograph was taken during the 1920's .
