Atkinson, Eliza Ann – c1920s

Eliza Ann Atkinson c1920s

Title Eliza Ann Atkinson
Date c1920s
Location Guiseley
Photo ID F621
Comment Donated by David Charles.

The donor David Charles, told us his grandmother Eliza Ann Atkinson worked as a domestic servant for the Baker family on their farm. This would have been around 1900 – 1920, one of her duties was the care of Harry Baker who had a leg infirmity. Eliza was happy working on the farm, the Baker’s were kind employers and looked after her.

When she had a family of her own they still gave her work even though to come to Guiseley Eliza had to walk from Pepper Road, Hunslet, Leeds, with her two children.

It is not known who the child in this photograph is though it is possible that it was one of Harry Baker’s children.

Editor’s Note: Pepper Road, Hunslet, to Guiseley is some 13.9 miles, a fair walk for a lady with children.
