The photos have passed to Emmy Eustace, and are reproduced here with her permission.
The man in this picture is JB Eustace (a friend of owner Minna Anson). The woman is probably his wife Helena (although it might be her sister, Amy Bankes).
Notice the apparent iron bound millstone to the left of the picture, suggesting that the machinery from Jack may have already been removed when this photo was taken.
The print of this photo in the Frank Gregory Collection notes on the back:
War effort. 20,000 wire handles. Made for 3"/4" shells.
Note the photos on the wall - including an exterior shot of the mills. The open door probably shows the interior of the Duncton Gate mill roundhouse.
Photograph by J Dixon-Scott. Entitled: 'Old Mills on the South Downs'. Used on a Christmas card from Minna Spencer Cowper Anson, who first leased then owned the mills from 1910 onwards.
