Waterworks 1896- closeup of the Keyser Family

One of Keyser's many works was installing the first water supply and this photo was taken at the opening ceremony in 1896. Charles Keyser is clearly identifiable to the left of the fountain, wearing a straw hat and to his right is a Pekinese- the family's favourite breed. Behind and to the right of the water are almost certainly his wife and three daughters.. The right-hand figure is most likely Dorothy Keyser, and second from the right is either Muriel or Sybil. A set of delightful miniatures of the three daughters has survived and these are presented below.
