update Nov. 2011 - I've been contacted by Nick Marsh, here is what he said
I know the
sitters in the photo on your web site which has “Amy and Eric Allen,
children of David Allen, Junior” (below left) inscribed on the
back. They are my Great Uncle Eric and Great Auntie Amy. His full
name was Eric Henry Cook Allen and her full name was Amy Agnes Leonora
Allen. As well as being the cousins of my Great Grandfather Maurice
Tyrone Workman Allen they were also the cousins of my other Great Uncle
William Edward David Allen who lived at Commonwood House in Hertfordshire
which is also shown on this page. Their shared Grandfather and my Great,
Great, Great Grandfather is David Allen Senior, the founder of David Allen
& Sons, the major printing and bill posting company in Belfast which also
expanded to England. My Grandmother was Daphne Allen who would have
been their niece. If you’re interested the attached family tree shows
the connection from Nicholas Maurice Ryding Marsh (me) back to them.
This is the first picture I have seen of Eric and what struck me about him is
how much he looks like my father when he was a boy and also how much he looks
like my nephew now! Absolutely incredible, so thank you so much for
posting the pictures!
