lost and found

Breathing new life into lost photographs

Profile of a Young Lady

 

Lady w m salmon

Cabinet Card bought from Kinver Antiques Fair. My eye was drawn to this image immediately, the soft focus around the edges, the foxing and the beautiful details on the dress. It was taken by W M Salmon of London Street, Reading; unfortunately no information on the young lady herself.

Photograph on the steps

Stairway_0001

Postcard bought from Kinver Antiques Fair just over a week ago.

Sadly no information on the reverse but the image has so much going on; the little girl holding her Sister’s hand on the right, the men in hats near the top of the image, the buckets and spades the children are holding…

Mom in black

Mom in Black

The only information written on the back of this postcard is:  ‘Mom in black, third row, second in from right’.

The sign behind the group reads Elamara but otherwise this one is a mystery…

Mr Ollenbache my friend

two gentlemen on motorcycles

Bought from an antiques centre in Whitchurch Shropshire this week, this photograph measures 4 x 2.5 inches.

The message on the reverse reads:

Mr Ollenbache my friend & myself on our motor cycles, notice the house on the hill in the back ground, the other snaps are of this house.” 

Sadly I don’t have the other snaps but they seem to be having fun riding their motor cycles and sidecars.

John Dent & Nicholas in the garden

John and nicholas

Small photograph measuring  3 x 3.75  inches.

The reverse reads ‘ John Dent & Nicholas Saidena at The Avenue – Penn – W’ton. Home of Edwin Lewis (Olive Dent’s Father).’

The photograph was bought at a car boot sale.

It looks as though John and Nicholas are watering plants in their matching aprons.

 

Photobooth Lady & Gent

Photobooth image of a lady and gentleman. No information on the reverse of this photograph. Unusual as neither are looking directly at the camera.

Double Exposure

Double Exposure

 

This postcard was found in an antiques shop in Shrewsbury last week along with a few others. I think the ghostly quality has been created by exposing the image twice. I have never seen this effect in a photograph of this age, perhaps because most would have been discarded? The house also seems to be merging with the trees. Sadly there is no further information on the reverse of the postcard.

Going Away Part II

The second of two photographs, the reverse of this one reads ‘Eastuary (or Easting) Lodge & car – going away Feb 6th 1934.

The photographer was lucky enough to frame the lady waving within the car window.

Going Away

This small photograph (approx 2 x 3 inches) was bought at a flea market near Shrewsbury a few weeks ago.

The reverse reads ‘Price and Stace Seefden “going away” Feb 6th 1934’

Price looks much happier than Stace!

I liked the image because one of them is in, the other out of focus.

The photo is one of pair, the other shows the car they went away in, I will post that one soon…

Two gents, a lady and a dog?

A postcard bought from Oswestry indoor market.

Two gentlemen, a lady and a dog or a cat? The animal looked to large to be a cat but I could be wrong.

No message on the reverse.
