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.

I found these first two photos in separate flea market bins, amongst hundreds of others. It was only on the train home that I realised they depicted the same family. Reunited by blind luck! There was also another of Benno as a baby with his nurse. She is named as "Gacka" or "Gaika".
