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.

Corner of Beaconsfield and Springfield Road, Brighton. 1940s.
I find many of my photos in Brighton, yet very few that were actually taken there, so this one makes a pleasant change. An unusually snowy Brighton, maybe during the infamous hard winter of 1946-7.
