I cannot believe this, but I was just going through some things that I've been researching for the last couple of months. I've got scans of a collection of Victorian-era albums and am getting them ready to go online. A couple of the albums were put together by a young Captain in the Grenadier Guards who served in Canada in the early 1860s. Well, I was just going over that and realized that the Captain and Lt.-Col. William Earle in some of the photos is the same man in your photo. I never put two-and-two together on this one!

I'm posting the photos here. If you'd like to see larger versions of any, just send a PM to me. :)

Hi Sarah!
Thank you for link to the biography! I read he was promoted Major-General on 31 October 1880 so now I can date my photograph between that year and 1884.

About the photographs you sent me I can only say… Wow!!! What a great find! They are amazing!
I love 1860s photographs, especially those with military subject.
I would be very happy if could send me a larger version! :)
May I ask you if you own the originals or only the scans? May I also ask you on what site do you usually post old photographs? Are you a Flickr member?

Hi!

Larger versions will be coming to you shortly. :)
I only have the scans, but all of the photos are part of a large collection that will be posted on my site here:
http://www.eliotsofporteliot.com/

Right now, though, I'm working on getting photos identified and cropped for the webpage. Hoping to get everything up throughout the next winter months!
