You have noted the death of Louise as 1927, but it shows as 1947 on the top of the newspaper clipping. As William Thomson is definitely not in his 80s, I think 1947 is the more accurate date! Comment left on 10 July 2009 at 12:13 by Emma Murray Image Library and the museum catalogue amended to date 1947. Most grateful for this observation Administrator
