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.

Girls with fans. Bingley, Yorkshire.

Schoolgirls with fans. Bingley, Yorkshire.

A fabulous group of girls, all holding fans, and a stereotypical hatchet-faced school mistress. She looks terrifying! There's a name scratched on the wall behind them. I think it says "William Wallis".
