Another fantastic old photograph postcard find was this lovely old image of a couple on their wedding day with clues on the back:
On the reverse of the postcard is written ‘ With Mr & Mrs R G THOMAS’s Compliments 16th June 1913’, but unfortunately no clues to the area or publisher.
Some initial research on Free BMD showed a marriage int he April to June quarter of 1913 between Richard Gregory THOMAS and Mary Carruthers MURDO in the Birkenhead Registration District.
The 1911 census, as below, showed Richard Gregory THOMAS aged about 26 living in Chester with his parents Richard and Mary THOMAS and siblings Percy, Ethel, George, Charles and John – father’s occupation was shown as a Professor of Music whilst Richard was an Accountants Clerk.

The 1911 census for Mary Carruthers MURDO showed her aged 21 living in Manchester and working as an Asylum Nurse.

Richard Gregory THOMAS died in the April quarter of 1945 aged 58 and Mary Carruthers THOMAS nee MURDO died in the January quarter of 1971 aged 80 both in the Chester Registration District.
