Rev Frank Short

Rev Frank Short is mentioned in the post about Helen Walker Wylie's wedding in 1936 - and here he is in 1931 (standing in the back row) with the Committee of Kowloon Union Church. I do have names for most of those pictured, and if anyone is curious, will happily post them.

Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Thursday, January 1, 1931

Deep embarrassment! Struggled to upload this photo and don't know why it's come out upside down. Any technical wizards able to right it? If not, I can have another go (or you might try standing on your head to view it?,)

Hi Jane,

They're back on their feet again! Thanks for posting, and yes please, I'm interested to see the other names too. 

Any idea if that's the Kowloon Union Church in the background?

Regards, David

PS Now you've uploaded the photo you can insert it into other posts / comments, see: http://gwulo.com/node/1929

Do you have the name of the gentleman in the dog collar in the front row? A long shot, but I'm trying to find information on the Rev John Turnbull Cook, who married (and divorced) one of my Hong Kong cousins. The marriage would have been about 1933.

Hi Janect,

I am very interested to know the name of the people in the picture. Grateful if we can contact at cheltont@yahoo.com.hk 

Thanks a lot!

Hi Janect,

I am very interested to know the name of the missionaries in the picture too.

My email address is chihangok@gmail.com

Thanks a lot!

Yes, please do post the names of the people in your photo. Maybe David can help with his red overlay: 1a, 1b, 1c etc.

Thank you, everyone, for your messages asking for names to be put to the faces in this picture. I’m deeply embarrassed to realise how long it is since I posted the photograph - my only excuse is that, in the meantime, I’ve completed a 2-year college course; been involved in some heavy-duty voluntary work related to my former profession, and undertaken two house moves (my mother’s, and my own).... however the family photos etc are now with me, and accessible, so thank you for your patience, and get your paper and pencils ready!

My late aunt identified the people in the picture - my apologies if she’s got any of the names wrong.

Back row: A H Gardner, Rev Frank Short (China Inland Mission), J J Cornelius, D Gow, Mrs D Harvey, Robert Taylor [my grandfather] J Provan, John Revie, Mr Ingram

Front Row: Mrs Forsyth, Mrs Groundwater, George Leib, Rev Horace Johnston, Mrs Johnston, Mr Warren (Canada), Mrs A Lang*, Mrs Nelson

 

* I can’t quite make out my aunt’s writing here - I think it’s ‘Lang’ though it might possibly be ‘Long’

 

Hope this helps!

Many thanks, Jane!

Dear Jane 

Thank you so much for sharing this photo and these names with us here.

My name is Maggie Mathieson and I am currently serving as one of the pastors here at Kowloon Union Church.

The Church has recently been declared a monument and we are trying to collect as much information about her story as possible. If you would have any other photgraphs in your collection and would not mind sharing I would love to hear from you.

My contacts are maggie@kuc.hk or maggienudnik@gmail.com

Thank you once again for sharing in here and looking forward ot hearing from you.

Aye 

 

Revd. Maggie Mathieson

Thank you for the picture.
