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.

On the Road. 1935.

On the road. 1935. Scotland.

A fortunate find from a house clearance shop, this album of 36 photographs (see the complete set here) charts a motoring holiday taken by a family and their dog in 1935. Their car numberplate indicates that they probably lived in London. They toured around the western Scottish highlands, and also visited beauty spots in Yorkshire and Cumbria.

Touring, Scotland, 1935. Main Street, Inveraray, Scotland. 1935. On the 1935. Falls of Cruachan, Scotland. 1935.
