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.

Old couple and a tumbledown whitewashed thatched bothy. Unidentified location. Scotland?

An interesting view of an old couple living an essentially medieval life. The location is unidentified. I have found photos of very similar structures in the Western Isles of Scotland, but this is somewhere with more trees. Probably 1930s.
