The Grange – Vintage Photos

Some older photos of The Grange, Hurworth-on-Tees, England, dating from the late 1920’s to the 1940’s. These have never been publicly published. I was granted exclusive permission by the surviving Backhouse family heir to use and publish these. They are from her private archive. The couple in the photo are Claude & Margaret Spielman. The photo with the woman and child walking along the wooded path is of Margaret Spielman and one of their children, either Joan, Roger or Ruth. Son John had died before his 13th birthday, and before the family purchased The Grange. The Giant Redwood trees were shipped over from California in the 1870’s and continue to flourish today.
