Mystery Family Photos from 1927

Do You know this Family?

By David Bullock

I recently purchased these photos at an auction. It is sad to find a family photo album has been chopped up and seperated by location. The three Photos only have christian names but the first tantalisingly has some bungalows in the background. The original print was made back to front but I have corrected it here - can you make out what the bungalow name is - apparently something Villa? I have blown it up but unlike the fiction of television crime shows it doesn't help much!

Hi Dave,
At first glance I thought it was Rowntree or Rowantree Villa, now I'm not so sure, having checked through Janet Penns' list of bungalow names taken from burial records(1813-1938) I cannot find a likely match amongst the capital B,P&R names or the villas and villes. However among the Ps I did come across one called Perseverance, so don't give up!
