C1900/20: Harry Baker, Guiseley.
The donor of these two photos, 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 Bakers 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.
