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.

Allies! British, American and Soviet officers walking together. Weimar, Germany.

British, American and Soviet officers. Unidentified city.

A nice illustration of that short period of optimism before the Cold War began. I identified the city by googling clock towers all over Bohemia, Germany and Austria until I found this one. See a modern view here.
