L to R: Maye, Marion, Kathleen, Laura, James, Elinor, Bessie, Muriel.
James Jr., known as Boy by his immediate family, and born in January 1894, is dressed the same as his sisters. In the 19th century, boys and girls were dressed alike until aged about 4. At this time, boys would have a 'breeching ceremony' where their hair would be cut short and they would wear their first pair of trousers. Although less common by the end of the 1800s, the Dunsmuir family followed this tradition.

In the early 1920s, Dunsmuir sisters, Dola and Muriel, and Muriel’s husband, Edward Molyneux, took time to tour the ruins of Europe in the aftermath of the war. Edward Molyneux was an ideal tour guide for the sisters, having served in 1915 with the Duke of Wellington Regiment on the Western Front. Although he was promoted to Captain for his actions in battle, injury resulted in the loss of sight in his left eye and withdrawal from active duty.

This photo shows Molyneux at the ruins of the town hall in Armentieres near the Belgian border. Armentieres was a significant Allied stronghold in the early part of the war and was used for stationing troops. It was taken by the Germans in 1918 and much of the destruction of the town was caused by the retreating Allies to make the roads and buildings useless to the invading army.
