    I have an old photograph of a small girl sitting on a table with her feet on a chair. It has Thomas Partridge Salcombe Artist and Photographer printed on the back.
    Is there any way of knowing when it may have been taken and who the child is?. Are there any records of Thomas Partridge’s work?
    We had Adams relatives who farmed at Lower Rew in the mid to late 1800s and other relatives in the area.
    Thank you.
