You have noted the death of Louise as 1927, but it shows as 1947 on the top of the newspaper clipping. As William Thomson is definitely not in his 80s, I think 1947 is the more accurate date! (Image Library and the museum catalogue amended to date 1947. Most grateful for this observation - Administrator Image Library)
