This is POSSIBLY a wedding at the Forslind home in Stanhope Avenue. Amongst the subjects are perhaps William and Augusta Forslind and children Karin and Erik and it could be that Charles Forslind and family are also on the picture. It was taken by Braybrook of Church Square Hartlepool in late Victorian times.
