Amazing Pics That Document Daily Life of a Bristol Family in the Edwardian England

This album was found by Wolfgang Wiggers at a German flea-market. The name of the owner does not appear in the album, but due to the captions, it can be assumed it was a young German woman that lived and worked in England between 1894 and 1910. She has lived in Bristol together with a family called Herring.

"Even more fascinating is that one of my Flickr friends could find the names of the mentioned persons in the 1901 census. They are presumably: Mr. Alfred Herring and Mrs. Herring (Emily Haines); they got married in 1879. Her children were all born in Wargrave Berkshire and lived in Westbury on Trym before they moved to Bristol. They are: Justin Howard Herring born 1889, Mabel Herring born 1884, Hilda Herring born 1886, Emily Elizabeth Herring born 1881 (this might be 'Milla')."
Maybe someday one of their descendants will find these photographs.
