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.

Seeing double

Girl with basket

Not twins (above) but the same girl photographed twice with her basket. When I found the Birmingham pair below I thought the same, but no. They are different girls in the same chair, in identical dresses. Probably sisters.

Sisters in identical dresses. Birmingham.
