From 1897 to 1907 the main mining company in the area was the “Anglo
Italian Talc and Plumbago Mines Company Ltd.” Amongst the shareholders
there were members of the Huntriss family
and George Huntriss
keeps in its records pictures about them and some notes.
This is how Piero
describes this picture.
This lady is Winnie Huntriss, one of the daughters of
Huntriss [Winifred Huntriss (1893-1977)].
George Huntriss was president of the Anglo Italian Talc and Plumbago
Mines Company Ltd until 1907 when it become Talco & Grafite Val
Winnie was my mother's friend and, most likely, she come to visit us
together with her father who still kept some kind of interest in the
company. The picture could date spring 1915 but I have no idea about
where it was taken. Probably, it was sent to my mother form England.
Winnie was a very sporty lady. I still remember her during a visit in
1928 when she was our guest over some days.
