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.

Mother and child.
This one remains my favourite out of all the hundreds I've collected. I love everything about it, including the hat. The subjects and photographer are unidentified. Bought off an ebay vendor in Scotland.
