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.

Malta, 1930s

Republic Street / Kingsway, Valletta, Malta. Royal Opera House. 1930s.

Two views of Malta in the 1930s before it was heavily damaged by wartime bombing. Kingsway (above), now known as Republic Street, in Valletta, with the later-destroyed opera house on the right. See a modern view of it here. Below, Victory Street, in Senglea, with St Phillip's church in the background.
