Isaac and Harriet Palmer

These delightful photographs were sent to me by John Pyne, a descendant of Alice Nellie Yeo, daughter of Isaac and Harriet. Photographs are unique, at the time of them being taken there were no photocopying facilities and probably only one member of the family possessed the original, usually the females.

Isaac and Harriet with family. Can anyone identify these children or in laws?
