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.

Italian lake?

Unidentified lake or loch.

I found the first one (see enlarged details below) in a flea market bin and thought the landscape and foliage might mark it out as one of the Italian lakes. Later I found this second one in the same bin. The tricolour flag could be either French or Italian, of course. Are they connected? I could be completely wrong, of course. I'm open to suggestions!

Rowing boat. Italy?
