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.

RMMV Capetown Castle

RMS Capetown Castle

An an unidentified flea-market find, I threw this one open to the ocean liner enthusiasts and they were eventually able to pin down this ship as the Capetown Castle. There's an atmosphere about this one which is hard to define; a sense of expectation and promise.
