A Victorian CDV featuring an older couple as photographed by Christopher Plews. By 1891, the Plews family had moved into the Post Office, making number 3 Sunderland Street their place of work and family home. Headed by Christopher Plews, of Castle Bolton, Yorkshire, the family had originally lived behind Sunderland Street in the cottages of Stocksfield Place. Prior to that they had spent time in Greenville, USA, where Christopher’s son, also called Christopher, was born in 1876. The Post Office premises offered the ideal place for Christopher to run his successful photography business from, and many Carte de Visites – small mounted photographs – still exist bearing his business name and address.
