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.

Found Album

Photo album found in a house clearance shop.

A £20 bargain I found in a house clearance shop in Haywards Heath, West Sussex. It contained 21 cabinet portraits and two photographs of buildings, dating from the 1870s to 1910, taken in different parts of England and Scotland, and one from San Francisco. Several individuals appear more than once. I assume it was a family album, though the content doesn't pin it down to any one locality. See them all here.
