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.

Ha! Smiling Victorians.

Happy family

19th century Britain was a very serious place. Nobody smiled in photographs, ever. Well, almost nobody.

Smiling lady. London.
