"Writing on the back from my great-aunt Eveline Frances Price of Weston House, Gresford, to her brother Frederick in Australia. 'This shows the Green Farm & Girls' School. There is a new farmhouse now and there is a new Girls' School built by the Boys' School. The old one is used for meetings'". (Contributed by Graham Price)

Gladwyn

"Writing on back from my great-aunt Eveline 'Mrs White used to live here, you will remember Jack(?) White - a Liverpool gentleman - bought it and has altered it very much'". The house later became a maternity home, a home for the elderly and a children's home. (Contributed by Graham Price)

Gresford Mill

Gresford Mill was a substantial brick-built three-storey water-powered corn mill, with an enclosed water-wheel in a stone-built annexe. Water was supplied by a head-race some 430m long, from a weir and sluice on the Afon Alyn. The mill has since been demolished. (Contributed by Graham Price)

Gresford Mill

"Often labelled in earlier days as 'Gresford Mills', which was worked by my great grandfather Frederick Price c1852 to early-1900s. Some of the persons in the photograph are undoubtedly antedescendants of mine! (Contributed by Graham Price)

Wrexham Road

"From my great-aunt Eveline at Weston House, Gresford, to her brother Frederick in Australia. Writing on the back is 'This is a row of houses a little past The Plough, near Mr. Allington Hughes' home - we have quite a number of Ford cars and a bus running from Wrexham to Gresford and Chester now. The railway is suffering very much from this. Miss Egerton died about 6 months ago - she has left the property to Sir Raleigh Egerton. He asked me where you were, he remembers you putting the cocks to fight.' (Contributed by Graham Price)

Gresford Bridge

"Wording on back from my great-aunt Eveline Price to her brother Frederick in Australia 'You will remember Frank Roberts, who would come to the Mill. He has been Town Surveyor of Wrexham for some years, he has no sons, he has just been appointed Secretary to the Cambridge Press at a salary of 1000 pounds per year, so he is doing well. Mr Avery came to see us yesterday. He looks very well.'". (Contributed by Graham Price)
