Konfussed Arber?

Harold William Arber was born, 19th June 1902 at Highbury, London.
He is (Possibly) on 1911 Census 8yrs old, at 35 Herrick Road, Islington N. living with the Nethercote family (Of whom I have no record) and listed as "add son". I presume this means "adopted son"? If so, most odd, as I have a photo of him, I guess about 14yrs old, with his birth family.


He is at the back on the left as you look at the photo.
Baby is George Arber, born 13th Dec 1914.
many 'Adoptions' were private arrangements between family members or even friends. In 1911 they had 6 children living with them, so maybe Harold lived with 'friends' for awhile. If he had been officially adopted wouldn't he have their name

Thanks Somerstown for posting a beautiful photograph.
I wish I had something like it for my family.
The whole family look lovely.
Just so special.
Thank you again
