lost and found

Breathing new life into lost photographs

Month: November, 2012

Coiffed Hair and Mo to Match

Cabinet card bought at a camera fair in Wolverhampton.

My final post for the month of Movember.

This chap has a wonderful moustache and a hair style which mirrors his mo style!

The photographer was Virgil Whalley, 352 Leeds Road, Nelson.

My work mates and I have raised over £400 so far, day  1-21 of my progress can be seen on YouTube.

Do you happen to know these fellows?

Postcard bought at Stafford Showground Antiques Fair  just over a week ago.

I usually only scan the photograph but for these two I made an exception!

Both proudly displaying excellent Moustaches which fits with this months theme for Movember.

The address on the reverse reads Mr James Lowrie, 12 Esplanade Terrace, Portobello, Edinburgh, Scotland Via New York  

The card doesn’t have a stamp or postal mark, perhaps it was posted inside an envelope?

I would love to know the real story behind this card so if you do know them get in touch…

Now that’s what I call a moustache


Bought from an Antiques Fair at Stafford Showground yesterday, this carte de visite was taken by

A & G Taylor, 70 & 78 Queen Victoria Street, 129 Fenchurch Street & Forest Lodge, London Road, Forest Hill, London.

I’m well in to my second week of Movember but I can only dream of a moustache like this one, it’s a beauty!


Los Angeles Cowboy



Cabinet Card bought at Kinver Antiques Fair.

The Photographers name is: Edouart & Son, 121 S Spring Street, Los Angeles.

I am taking part in my first Movember and thought this gentlemen was sporting a splendid example,

I wonder if his face itched as much as mine does at the moment!

Not sure if he is a Cowboy or not, perhaps the hat isn’t big enough?
