Photographs I've gleaned from flea markets, junk shops and sometimes ebay. The cheaper the better. Anything with a story that can be extracted from hand written notes, location research, local histories, census records......anything. A small band of fellow enthusiasts worldwide have helped me with many of these. Of course there are always mysteries that defy research, but there's even a story inside these. All images can be viewed at super-size on Flickr.

Streatley Mill, Goring-upon-Thames, 1924.

Streatley Mill, Goring-upon-Thames, 1924.

The Goring history society tell me that the mill was at this time used to generate hydro-electric power. A spark from this generator caused the building to be destroyed by fire in 1926.
