James ROBINSON 1830-1915

Graham Robinson emailed this photo and says:
Hello John,
I attach a photo of James Robinson. Born 30 June 1830 at Ashbourne. 
Died 29 Aug 1915 Wirksworth. On his marriage cert. of 3 July 1869 
he is described as Gas Works Manager. He probably took over from 
his father Edward Robinson when he retired as Gas Works Manager 
at Wirksworth. 
The photo would have been taken c. 1895. There is a much later photo 
of him and his wife already on the Wirksworth Web. 
Kind regards,
Graham G. Robinson 

Photo taken:c1895
