Also, clicking here will bring you to some photos of the German Hospital in Dalston, where Jakob died, and some history about it.
This photo shows John Ullinger, on the left, and his brother Daniel on the right; the figure at the top is unrelated, as far as I know. It's hard to guess at their ages, but Daniel looks to be at least 20, so it must have been taken in the 1880s. Many thanks to his daughter Eleanor's family for providing it. If anyone has a better copy of this photo, or can tell me any more about it, please get in touch!
