lost and found

Breathing new life into lost photographs

Month: May, 2012

December 1900

Cabinet card bought at a Camera fair, the only information on the reverse is December 1900.

This beautiful young lady has such a calm expression on her face.

The photographer was called Davis with studios at 16 Princes Street, Edinburgh and 52 West Nile Street Glasgow.

Paignton Aug 1929

Postcard bought on ebay with a collection of others.

The reverse reads: Paignton Aug 1929.

I like the photo of the family and the lady having a snooze under a blanket behind them!

Crowd with hats

Postcard bought at a car boot sale in Dudley.

No message, although it looks as if this crowd has gathered for some kind of performance.

I decided to scan this one sooner rather than later as the top right corner is starting to fall apart!

A great range of  hats and facial expressions.

I just noticed the figure in the left aisle and at the back who must have moved when the photo was being taken.
