lost and found

Breathing new life into lost photographs

Month: March, 2014

H. J Burgess & Sons Fishmonger & Poulterer

Bought from an antiques fair  (I can’t remember which one!) the photograph measures just shy of 6 x 8″.

The only information on the reverse is the date – Sept 1906.

I like the lady standing inside the shop who hasn’t been asked to pose outside with the men but has still managed to sneak into the photograph.

I was unable to find any record of H.J. Burgess & Sons on the internet so if anyone knows more please let me know.

p.s. can you see the dog?

American Girl


American Photobooth lady

This image of a beautiful American girl arrived at my house last Friday.

I bought the photo booth image from a seller in Quilcene, Washington, USA on ebay for a few dollars.

Two Ladies and a Vintage Car

two girls and a car


Small photograph (approx 2.5 x 3.5 inches) bought at a Car Boot Sale in Telford Shopping Centre a few weeks ago.

No further information on the back of this one. The photograph is a bit grainy which I like.

The fashions and car indicate that it was taken in the 1920’s or 30’s.
