Title Dr. Henry Duckworth: Wife with child in a Nursing Home 1921 or 1924
Description Black and white photograph showing Mrs. Sylvia Duckworth with a baby in her arms.
Both of her daughters, Joan and Sylvia, were born in Cheltenham. Her third child, a son, John, was born in Ross.

The children's birth announcements appeared in the Ross Gazette (publication date and page number in brackets):

For Joan Florence Anna (July 14 1921, page 5)
DUCKWORTH.- July 10, in the Royal Parade, Cheltenham, the wife of H. L. D'Olier Duckworth, M.B., 6, St. Mary's Street, Ross, a daughter.

For Sylvia Irene (January 3 1924, page 5)
DUCKWORTH. - December 30, at the Imperial Nursing Home, Cheltenham, the wife of H.L.D'olier Duckworth, M.B., 6, St. Mary's Street, of a daughter.

For John Alexander (February 7 1929, page 5)
DUCKWORTH. - On January 31st to Sylivia wife of H. L. D'Olier Duckworth , B.A., M.B., a son.

The photograph was almost certainly taken in either the Royal Parade or the Imperial Nursing Home (now called Imperial House) in Cheltenham. There are internal views of both properties on Google images. Rather confusingly they both show a similar room layout with the fireplace and alcove where Mrs. Duckworth is sat up in bed.
