58 : Everytown - To Be Sold

UNKNOWN TOWN SQUARE - PROBABLY 1920s (1612-099)
I suppose this could be any British town or city. There is the required statue of some dead monarch safely ensconced behind a wrought iron fence. Add buses and shops, pigeons and men in hats, and what you get is Everytown. Which, it would appear, is to be sold.

57 : The Vibrations Of Life Itself

SCANNED PRINT OF ASIAN TOWN SCENE - POSSIBLY SRI LANKA (1612-002)
This is a wonderful photograph. It is so busy. Things are going on all over the place, in every direction, at every level. Look at it and you can here the sounds and smell the smells. You can feel the vibrations of life itself.

56 : The Confidence Of The Posh

 UNKNOWN GROUP WITH CAR - 1611B-87 
Posh folk have such confidence. The hands comfortably in the pockets. The one-footed, cane-supported stance. The hands very firmly on the purse.

55 : Come In Number 25, Your Time Has Come

Unknown Man and Child In Boat : 1611B-86

A fabulous captured moment - who, when and where don't really matter. Over the years you can almost hear the chugging of the motor. You can almost feel the pride of the grandfather.

54 : Welcome Home


The fall-out from an intensive bout of room-tidying was this scrap of an old photograph that was stuck down behind an old plastic box. I have no idea who the child is or where he comes from. But he has been patiently waiting to be found for who knows how long. Wherever your home was, my room is now your home. Welcome home.

53 : A Message To The People Of Hermiston by Currie


Pencilled on the back of this old print is the following:  
"Miss Elize Carauthers, Hermiston by Currie, Scotland,
Mrs Owens, Hermiston by Currie, Scotland"
If Miss Carauthers or Mrs Owen would like to contact me, I will let them have the photo back.

52 : Three Men In A Car


Three men in a car. And what a car. A real car. Heavy on metal and rubber. A horn that would put the fear of God in any passing pedestrian.
