Below are a selection of family photographs from the voyage of the Steam Yacht Aurora and later life of Stan Taylor and his family. Unfortunately some of the originals are in quite poor condition and we do not yet know the names of many of the people in the photos. If anyone is able to identify any of the people in these images we would welcome that information.
