Serving The Past

A Memory of Great Yarmouth

I have recently discovered, from the 1881 Census, that my great-grandmother was, with her younger sister, in domestic service to the family of Henry Stonex at no.35 Regent Road.He is described as 'organist and music teacher'. I would be thrilled to have any more information about the family or the house itself. Does it appear in this picture?
Is the boy with the goat-cart delivering something?
