I suspect this photograph is the wrong way round due to the window. It doesn't really affect it though.

I think the biggest give away that the photo is back to front is the handkerchief in the top pocket as usually they are on the left hand side of your chest.I also remember Henry used his stick in his right hand.

If you look at the photo (id no: 746) of Bridge Street that might well provide the answer to this compelling mystery.

This courtesy of Mister Alan Shaw:

'After serving 43 years with Messrs Jas. Robertson and Sons limited, preserve manufacturers of Droylsden, Mister Harry Borland retired on a pension.'

So before he was the rent collector for the Jodrell Estate, Harry had other employment and it gave him a pension.
A pension in those days? Jammy bugger.
