These are the sort of pics that everyone took of friends and neighbours, and must exist in their thousands. It is just that they have been put away and forgotten about. The danger is that they will be rediscovered in thirty years time, no one will remember who they were, and they will be destroyed, lost forever. Great stuff.
My mother went to St James's Sunday School when she lived in Clifton Road. She had a book given to her in 1922 as a Special Prize. The book was Good Wives by Louisa M Alcott which I still have. Sorry the photo is sideways - I can't change it!
hi judy how lovely that you still have the book that your mom received thanks for posting...yet another little family treasure for you...
hi maurice it really only dawned on me a few months ago when i was looking through my family photos that not everyone has films developed nowadays unless they are special ones that are for framing..most are kept on their phones and social media so i guess it wont be long before the days of finding old photos in skips and attics etc will be more or less at an end this is why it is so important to hang onto the old ones that we have...guess thats progress for you
