Hello! I wrote the article in the Oldie and am a great grand daughter of Frederick Swynnerton. If you’re interested I can send you some other details about Fred who lived in India for many years, but started off his professional life trying to paint portraits in Ghent (hence one of these pictures). I have my grandmother’s memoirs of her early years also, and her memories of Simla and of her father.
