Just wondering if she might actually be the ETHELAIDA? Of similar vintage (built 1891) and also from Readheads.
She would also make the photo pre-WW1

I will throw ETHELREDA into the mix ... certainly only 4 letters after the ETHEL. ... =ETHELREDA

You'll remember Ethel from The Glums .... oooh, Ron! :lol:

I think you have it Ron, Kevin has just sent me this extra detailed scan. ETHELAIDA fits well.
