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.

Hastings. 1907.

Paddling. Hastings. 1907. (enlarged)

After scanning, enlarging and correcting, these great girls appeared out of a very faded postcard. They look somehow so modern. One of them had written on the reverse "Here we are again, having a ripping time. Eva." Which one were you, Eva?
