I have some framed pencil sketches which were framed by
"Edwin C Wynne, Carver, Gilder and Picture Frame Maker, 253 Borough Road, Birkenhead. opposite the fire Station." does anybody know anything about him, I would guess he would have been in business in the early part of the 1900s.

May also be known as Edward Charles Wynne who lived at 20 Whetstone Lane just round the corner from the shop (and was a picture frame maker), though it could have been son or brother I guess?

I think Edwin was born in 1868 and died 1941.

253 was a Drapers in 1900 but Edwin was certainly in business there at least between 1909 and 1920.

I'm sure Bert will come up with some goods.

Thanks for the info, I'd guessed that the pictures were framed about 1920, I've had them since about 1972, having rescued them from being burned by a descendant of the previous owner, They're probably not worth anything but I couldn't see them destroyed.
