Mystery Photo Friday (#2): Recognize Anyone?

Thanks to everyone who got in touch over the past week regarding last Friday’s mystery photos. (More about those later in this post.)

This week, we’re focusing on kids… and the photos are from Green Turtle Cay, Hope Town and Nassau.

PHOTO #6 – This photo is from the Wyannie Malone Museum collection
PHOTO #7 – This photo is from Green Turtle Cay’s Island Roots Heritage Festival organizing committee archives
PHOTO #8: From the Wyannie Malone Museum collection
PHOTO #9: I’ve shared this pic before, but never positively identified these girls. Exactly where this photo was taken is unclear, though I’m fairly certain it’s in Abaco.
PHOTO #10: This photo, from the collection of my late grandmother, Lurey Curry Albury, was taken in Nassau during the late 1950s. I know that #8 is my uncle, Freddy Albury, but have no idea who the others are. The young people appear to be the winners of some sort of contest sponsored by d’Albenas. Recognize anyone?

If you recognize any of the kids in this photos above, please comment below or send me an email, referencing the photo number.

(UPDATE May 26th – Agnes Marsha Lowe advises that #2 is Ginny Dugan, #15 is Anne Knowles Leaver and #16 is Brad Albury. Anne Leaver (#15) says they were the winners of a colouring contest sponsored by d’Albenas and the prizes were Fiesta cameras.)

Regarding last week’s photos, Bonnie Malone Hall has identified the following group as the Roberts family — Henry Lawrence Roberts, Irma Lowe Roberts and their children.

Back row, L-R: Henry Lawrence Roberts, Henry Percival, Dorothy Mae, Donald Lawrence, Irma Lowe Roberts. Front row, L-R: Cynthia Eleanor Marina, Elizabeth, Caroline Winifred (mother of Bonnie’s husband, Arnold Hall.)

And thanks to Joy Lowe Jossi for identifying the lady below as Eliza ‘Liza’ Albury Lowe (1864-1949), mother of Irma Lowe Roberts, pictured above.

Please feel free to share this post with anyone you think may be able to help put names to faces. Thanks!

    Note: the correct spelling is HERMA Lowe Roberts, not Irma… tho that’s often Bahamian lingo.

    # 10 Donald Edmund 1916-2011 d’Albenas of d’Albenas Agencies in Nassau. He married in 1941 Dorothea Malone.

      Hi, Joy. Thanks. It’s a bit confusing, as she actually shows up in the Bahamas Civil Registry records in different places as Irma, Erma and Herma.

    Hello Amanda,
    Photo #10 – I recognized #15 in the photo as Anne Knowles Leaver. Anne advised that #2 is Ginny Dugan and #16 is Brad Albury. Anne also said they were the winners of a coloring contest sponsored by d’Albenas and the prizes were Fiesta Cameras.

    Amanda, in the photo of Henry Lawrence Roberts and Herma Lowe Roberts with their children Donald is standing next to his dad and Henry Percival is on the other side, next to his mom Herma.
