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.

Two picnics

Picnic, Sussex.

The top one may have come from the same album as the two photos in my last entry. The bottom one is a beach party. Note the copper kettle. You often see kettles and tea cups in old picnic photos, but no sign of how they boiled the water.

Family on the beach. Picnic with teapot or kettle.
