Ada Swanborough with Miss Giffard (I think this must be Mary Agnes Giffard, listed in the Era Almanack as making her London debut in 1871) A carte de visite photograph by Fradelle & Marshall, circa 1876.

This photograph has no written identification on the reverse, and is rather damaged.
I think it may be of an older Edward Swanborough with his wife, Fanny.
The carte de visite was taken in the Photographic Rooms in the garden near the Rosary, Crystal Palace, circa 1885.

Sadly this photograph has no identification.
Edward and Fanny's son Harold?
It is a carte de visite by E.C. Burnham of Brixton & Peckham, circa 1880.

As well as family and Strand photographs, there are a few famous actors and one royal in the Swanborough collection.

A carte de visite photograph of the actor J.L. Toole by Southwell Brothers, circa 1863.
The reverse of the photograph is inscribed by Toole to Ada Swanborough:

'To Miss Ada Swanborough
with J.L. Toole's kind regards'
