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.

Funeral procession of King George V, 1936, passing down Sussex Gardens, London.

Funeral of King George V. Sussex Gardens, London. 1936.

Thanks to the great minds of the Flickr group 'guess where London' who swiftly pinned down the street for me. The procession started at Westminster and ended at Paddington station, from where the king's body was taken to Windsor by train.
